Alexandra Marinelly's story

Alexandra Marinelly is 39 years old. She is separated and has 3 children. They live in the city of Portoviejo, a place of hard-working people with unique attractions and a rich and varied cuisine.

She is a hard-working woman who looks for a way to earn a living and thus support her family on her own, since she is a mother and father at the same time.

She travels to a local beach on weekends and sets up a stand where she prepares and sells traditional food including corviches, empanadas, plantain with cheese and other snacks together with coffee, juice or soft drinks, to the taste of her customers who come to her stand and enjoy her delicacies that she prepares with much love.

This loan is to buy ingredients to prepare food.
