Leonor Concepcion's story

Leonor Concepción and her family live in Portoviejo, a city that was very affected by the 16 April 2016 earthquake and now by the Covid-19 pandemic. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruit for domestic consumption.

Leonor Concepción used to sell fruits and vegetables with her husband. Now she works from home selling a variety of men's and women's clothing; she leaves items on credit and collects payment weekly. She also works weighing cassava flour in her spare time and is paid by the day. At home she sells fruits and vegetables to her neighbors.

Everyone in her family got sick with Covid-19 and they have recovered. Social distancing kept her from working in the beginning for fear of contagion and various restrictions against going out to sell, but now she's working with biosafety protocols.

This loan is to buy t-shirts, dresses, pajamas, shorts, and fruits and vegetables.

Her dream is to have more sales and for her family to be very healthy.
