Johanna Elizabeth's story

Johanna Elizabeth, age 24, is the single mother of one minor child. They live in the Montecristi cantón, a place that remains very affected by Covid 19.

She is a hardworking woman who seeks the means to earn income in order to give her child the best, because she is both mother and father. She works making buttons from tagua. She has a "torno" (a machine to cut tagua) with which she makes the buttons in a raw form. She delivers the product to merchants in Manta, to be sent abroad.

She will use this loan to buy tagua.
