Martha Yesenia's story

Martha Yesenia and her family live in Picoazá, which is well-known for its commerce and its religious festivals, as well as its production of leafy vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruits. It is a source of progress and the center of informal commerce in Manabí.

Martha Yesenia has a small paper shop in her house where she sells pens, pencils, notebooks, folders, cards, markers, bond paper, etc. She does computer work and photocopying. She sells mangos, redcurrants, eggs, pickled vegetables, and snacks.

Everyone in her family got sick with Covid-19, and they have all recovered. Social isolation at first left her with no work because she feared contagion and because of various restrictions that kept her from selling. But now she is following all of the biosafety protocols.

This loan is for the purchase of markers, pencils, cards, colored pencils, reams of bond paper, printer ink, etc. Her dream is to have a larger paper store and for her family to be very healthy.
