Dayana Aracely's story

Dayana Aracely is 23 years old. She is in a common-law marriage, her spouse owns a restaurant, and they distribute yogurt. They live in a house that they rent in the city of Portoviejo, which was impacted by the earthquake on April 16, 2016 and now the COVID-19 pandemic. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruit for domestic consumption.

Dayana Aracely and her spouse have a restaurant where they serve breakfast, lunch, and snacks. They work all day preparing their delicious daily menus. Their orders are generally placed via WhatsApp for home delivery, but other customers come to the restaurant to serve themselves. In her free time, Dayana Aracely also sells Azzorti catalog products (beauty, personal care, clothing, and home products). She sells these items to her customers on credit and charges them weekly.

At first, the public health crisis was very difficult for her since she couldn't sell, but now she is slowly reactivating her business so she can continue generating income. This loan will be used to buy a variety of meat, chicken, vegetables, kitchen utensils, etc. Her dream is to have her own place to continue with the restaurant, for her family to be very healthy, and to be a good professional.
