Gladys Tendita's story

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

At her house, Gladys Tendita works making and selling breakfasts, lunches, and small meals. She sells them mostly to order. Also, outside her house, she has a space where she sells empanadas and corviches in the afternoons, where she serves her customers. On the weekends, she makes specialties which are ordered in advance. She also raises chickens in the yard. She sells these to her neighbors and also uses them for her dishes.

In her family, a child who needs dialysis, got sick from COVID-19 and has recovered and, sadly, her parents died. At first, the social distancing left her without work due to the fear of the virus and various restrictions which prevented going out to sell. But, currently she is working, following the biosafety protocols.

This loan is to purchase meats, fruit, vegetales, small chickens, corn, and vitamins. Her dream is to own a house and for her family to be very healthy.
