A loan helped to buy products to stock her grocery store.


Zaida Violeta's story

Zaida Violeta is 30 years old, separated, and has a ten-year-old daughter. They live in the city of Puerto López, a place with beautiful beaches and tourist attractions which was very hard hit by the health emergency caused by Covid-19.

Zaida is a hardworking woman. Despite the difficulties of this situation she made an effort to move forward so that her daughter lacks nothing. Zaida has a grocery store in her house. She sells a large variety of groceries and staple goods.

For Zaida the health crisis has been very difficult. From the beginning she couldn't sell. Now she is selling a little more. Even though she fears getting sick she works because it is how she makes a living for her and her daughter. She seeks this loan to buy products to stock her store.
