Carmen Maria's story

Carmen is 29 years old and a single mother of 3 young ones, ages 7, 2, and 2 months. They live in a rented house in the city of Manta, known for its lovely beaches which are visited by many all year round.

Carmen is a woman who, when facing the adversities she is experiencing, continues on for the good of her children. It is for this that she continues with her business selling food and also increased it by selling beauty products from catalogs.

She made her sales as a street vendor but, due to the health measures imposed by the government and the fear of getting sick, she decided to make her sales from her house and only delivered when orders were placed. For her, this has been very hard since her sales are not as before, but she continues on since it is in this way that she knows how to earn a living.

This loan is to purchase beauty products and groceries. Her dream is to give her children the best.
