Adriana Josefina's story

Adriana Josefina is 49 years old, married with no children. Her husband is a private employee. They live in a rented house in Jaramijo, a beautiful place whose inhabitants are very humble and hardworking people who are dedicated to commerce.

Adriana Josefina is a woman who refuses to let herself be defeated and tries to move forward despite the difficult situation she is going through. That is why 3 years ago she decided to start her business selling clothes and beauty products such as cosmetics, makeup, jewelry, among others. She used to sell her products in an itinerant way, now with the pandemic she only sells from home and through social networks to avoid any type of contagion. Even though her sales were affected, she continued making an effort for the welfare of her family.

This loan is to buy clothes, cosmetic products, make-up and jewelry to reactivate her business. Her dream is to have her own house.
