Maria Monserrate's story

Maria Monserrate, 42, is married and has 2 children from this marriage, aged 20 and 12. Her husband is an artisan. The family lives in Montecristi, a place known for its rich pre-colonial culture and its handicrafts. This place has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, both financially and socially.

Maria is a hardworking woman who is seeking a way to earn her own income so that she can help her husband and recoup income lost during the pandemic. They have a grocery store in their home where they sell consumer staples.

For Maria, the pandemic was very bad at first, because she was not able to sell. Also, some of her products got damaged, causing her losses. However, she was later able to re-open her business, and now she is continuing with it.

Maria will use this loan to buy products such as rice, sugar, cooking oil, etc.
