Katty Georgina's story

Katty Georgina and her family live in Manta, a charming city surrounded by beautiful beaches and an international fishing port that has also been greatly affected by COVID-19.

Katty is a woman who despite the adversities we are facing continues moving her business forward for the good of her family. She persists with her business selling clothing for children and adults. She used to makes her sales as an ambulant vendor but due to the sanitary measures imposed by the government and the fear of infection she now conducts her sales online and only hand delivers if asked.

Because of the pandemic, her sales have gone down and it has been very difficult but although the situation isn't easy she is going to continue with her business so that she can move forward

This loan is to purchase blouses, shorts, pants, dresses, amongst others things. Her dream is that this pandemic will soon pass and everything will return to normal.
