Melani Cristina's story

Melani Cristina is 19 years old and in a common law marriage. She has a 2 month old son and they live in Manta, one of the most important cities on the coast of Ecuador in terms of business and tourism.

Melani is a woman who daily pushes herself to get ahead, and it is for this reason that she continues with her business selling plantain chips. However, since the start of the Covid 19 pandemic, her business has been affected and her sales have decreased. The customers who frequently visited her business don't come anymore due to fear of some type of infection. In spite of the situation, she continues pushing herself so her business does not deteriorate and she is able to continue forward.

She will invest this loan in the purchase of plantains and oil, among other materials to restart her business. Her dream is for her business to continue growing and for her family to continue being healthy.
