Sorayda Moncerrate's story

Sorayda Moncerrate, age 52, is separated. She has three children who are adult and independent. She lives in her own house. They live in Portoviejo, a city affected by the April 16, 2016 earthquake and now by the Covid-19 pandemic. The city is rich in production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruit for domestic consumption.

Sorayda Moncerrate is a merchant selling various products from catalogs: clothing, costume jewelry, Belcorp (Ibel, Cyzone, Esika) (beauty products, cosmetics, perfume, and women's accessories). She also sells cheese by the pound, peanuts, "salprieta", and artisan sweets. Generally, she orders in advance because she travels to other provinces to deliver her products.

The health crisis at first was very bad because she could not sell, but now gradually she is reactivating to continue earning income. This loan is to buy cheese, "manjar", peanuts, "salprieta", etc. Her dream is to have her own vehicle to continue with her sales.
