Yuliana Mercedes's story

Yuliana Mercedes is married and has two children who are two and four years old respectively. Her husband is a laborer. They live in Montecristi Canton, which is where the famous straw hats are from. The area is still quite affected by Covid 19.

Yuliana Mercedes is a woman who likes to work so she can earn her own income and then use her income to help her husband with the household expenses. This has been even more important during the pandemic, which has made everything more complicated. Thanks to the loans, Yuliana Mercedes is able to work.

She previously earned her living selling beverages, like water and soda. She now earns her living selling clothing by going door-to-door, selling from her home and, since the pandemic started, through social networks, which has allowed her to sell a little more. Yuliana Mercedes sells on credit and collects payments on a weekly basis, and is able to earn a living.

This loan is for the purchase of pants, shirts, children's clothing and other garments.
