Maria Lucrecia's story

Maria is 58 years old, married and has four adult children. Her husband is unemployed. They live in Manta, a lovely city with exquisite food, beautiful beaches and tourist attractions.

Maria works hard every day to earn an income to help her husband with household expenses, as he is not working at the moment. She can manage this, but for now her husband helps with her business making brooms, which she set up at home 35 years ago. Her children also help her to sell the brooms retail and wholesale in various parts of the city. This work has helped her increase their income and improve her family's quality of life, although the pandemic affected her business to start with because they could not work normally. Her business is starting to improve again now.

She will use this loan to buy nails, wooden sticks, wire, paint and other necessary materials. Her dream is for her business to keep growing and be very productive.
