Teresa Orfelina's story

Teresa Orfelina and her family live in Portoviejo, a city which suffered an earthquake on the 16th of April of 2016, and which also suffers now with the Covid-19 pandemic. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, beans, and tropical fruits for domestic consumption.

Teresa Orfelina used to be a dressmaker but now, together with her spouse, she has a taxi in which she works offering taxi transport in various sectors of the city. She works eight hours and sometimes more on holidays. During this global crisis she has gone through financial difficulties, because she could not offer taxi transport, but now little by little she is reactivating her business so that she can go on generating her income.

This loan is to pay for auto parts and to pay for maintenance on the vehicle.
