A loan helped to purchase kebabs, bread, potatoes, and everything she needs for the business.


Katherine Cecibel's story

Katherine is 32 years old, in a common-law marriage and from this relationship has three children who are all minors and are going to school. Her spouse is a mason. They live in the city of Portoviejo, a place of honest and hard-working people who, thanks to their labor, get ahead and who have currently been very affected by the COVID-19 health emergency.

She is an enterprising and very hard-working woman who likes to support her spouse to get ahead together and give their children a better quality of life. For 8 years, she has worked on the weekends selling fast foods like wings, hamburgers, hot dogs and french fries, juices, and she also makes and sells black pudding and party food to order.

Due to the pandemic, her sales have dropped significantly but, with this new loan, she will strengthen her business.

This loan is to purchase kebabs, bread, potatoes, and everything she needs for the business. Her dream is to continue working and that her children can study.
