Monserrate Alexandra's story

Monserrate is 36 years old, married and has three children who are 13, 11 and 9 years of age. Her spouse works in fishing. They live in Jaramijo, a beautiful place where its inhabitants are very humble and hardworking people who make their living in the fishing trade.

Monserrate is woman of humble origins, good character and very hardworking. She strives daily to generate better income and to meet her household expenses. For that, two years ago she decided to start selling children's and adult's clothing. She offers it to her relatives and neighbors, selling on credit with weekly collection. It allows her to generate good income.

With this loan she will purchase blouses, pants, jackets, t-shirts, dresses, leggings among other items of clothing.

Her dream is for her business to progressively grow.
