Leydi Ibeth's story

Leidy, age 20, lives with her parents and younger sister in a humble little house in the city of Ibarra, province of Imbabura.

Leidy is an entrepreneur who, at her young age, had to leave school, to work to help her family. She was working in customer service for a company, but it closed after several months of lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Her income dropped and she decided to start her own business, informally selling clothing. She says that this work helps her to survive financially.

Leidy requests a loan because she very much wants to buy a greater variety of clothing to be able to expand her business and offer her clients a pretty and good-quality product.

Leidy appreciates you support and confidence, because she will be able to diversify her inventory and also to improve her income, to be able to better support her household.
