Fabiana Maria's story

The city of Portoviejo was affected by the earthquake of April 16, 2016. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruits for domestic consumption.

Fabiana is 21 years old. She is single and is studying economics. She lives in her parents' house. Fabiana continues with her business of informal sales at home and making trips to deliver orders. At this time, she is selling purses. She has a space at home where she sells every day. Her customers come to her house, and she delivers items on credit. She makes collections weekly. Her classmates and neighbors are her biggest customers. With the earnings, she pays for her education at the university and part of the household expenses.

With this new loan, she will buy purses of various colors and designs and clothing.

Her dream is to be a professional and work in administration.
