Aura Maria's story

Aura Maria is 65 years old. She is married and has six children, all adults. Her husband is a mason. They live in Manta, a place with beautiful beaches and varied gastronomy that is much visited by tourists in every season of the year, but it is not visited so much now, because of the pandemic caused by COVID-19.

She is a woman who, in spite of her advanced age, seeks to earn her resources and thus help her husband with the household expenses. Even though things are difficult because of the pandemic, she continues striving. She sells clothing, sheets, make-up, and costume jewelry. Her form of sales is door-to-door and in her house, and she also sells by telephone. She sells on credit and collects every week. In this way, she is succeeding in improving the situation of her family in spite of the fear of getting sick that she still feels.

This loan is to buy sheets, pants, dresses, blouses, make-up, and other products that she sells.
