Maria Jose's story

Maria is 32 years old, single, and lives with her mother and sibling in Manta, a place where the residents are humble and very hardworking people who day by day struggle to get their families ahead.

Maria is a woman who strives to earn a living honestly. Despite the difficult situation she is experiencing, she continues with her business, which she undertook 12 years ago, making a variety of decorations and crafts, and more. Although at the beginning of the pandemic, her business was a bit affected because she was unable to make her sales, she gradually was reopening her business so that, in this way, she continued generating the necessary income for her business and also household expenses.

She will invest this loan in cotton, craft foam, bars of silicon, poster board, glitter, and other materials. Her dream is that her business continues growing.
