Maria Jaqueline's story

Maria Jaqueline and her family live in the city of Portoviejo. The city was affected by an earthquake on April 16, 2016, and is now affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The city is rich in production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruit for domestic consumption.

Maria Jaqueline works selling products, such as perfumes, lotions, cosmetics, and costume jewelry, from Avon and Belcorp catalogs. She sells through social networks and delivers to homes. She is not selling chicken wings or roast pork skin because there is no one to buy the food, since many of her customers have lost their jobs. At first, the social isolation left her without work due to the fear of contagion; but now, she is following health and safety protocols while working.

This loan is to buy orders of perfumes, costume jewelry, deodorants, make up, etc. Her dream is for her family to continue being very healthy and for her business to continue growing.
