Ida Maria's story

Ida Maria is 66 years old. She is married and, from this relationship, has five children, all older in age. Her husband is a mechanic. They live in the city of Portoviejo, a place of beautiful rural landscapes and beaches that are visited a lot by people from the region and by foreigners.

She is a woman who likes to make a living by working. She has a store close to her husband's mechanic shop. She sells oils and lubricants there. She takes advantage of selling when her husband's customers bring their car in to get fixed or get their oil changed in the shop. In general, she has a good clientele that always buys from her since she and her husband give a lot of attention to them. This is why the customers prefer them.

This loan is to buy oils and lubricants. She dreams of continuing to work for the well-being of her family.
