Guillermina Beatriz's story

Guillermina Beatriz and her family live in Portoviejo, a city affected by the earthquake of April 16, 2016 and now with the COVID-19 pandemic. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruit for local consumption.

Guillermina Beatriz has a small store out of her house where she has a variety of pants, T-shirts, dresses, shirts, and sets of sheets. Before, she used to go out selling door-to-door, but right now, due to the pandemic, she only sells from home. However, she allows her customers to buy on credit and with weekly payments.

Members of her family were sick with COVID-19 but have been gradually recovering. The health crisis intially hit her very badly because she was not able to sell, but she is now starting up again, little by little, so as to be able to continue earning income.

This loan is to buy towels, hats, sandals, shorts, etc. for her customers' orders.

Her dream is to have her own storefront and for her family to be very healthy.
