A loan helped to purchase women's lingerie.


Cinthia Vanessa's story

Cinthia Vanessa is 26 years old, is in a common-law marriage, and has two children, ages 5 and 3. Her spouse works in a laboratory in another city. She lives with her mother and two children in the canton of Jipijapa, known as the Coffee Sultana, a place of lovely landscapes and very thoughtful and hard-working people. It is a place greatly affected by the health emergency caused by COVID-19.

Cinthia Vanessa is a very responsible woman who, despite focusing on caring for her children, also is doing her year of rural service in her nursing program. Since she began her studies, she has worked selling women's lingerie. She does it to be able to help herself financially to pay for her education. She offers her merchandise to her coworkers.

Before the pandemic, she made many sales, but now the situation is difficult and sales dropped but she is now starting to sell her merchandise a little.

With the money from the foundation's loan, she will invest in the purchase of women's lingerie. Cinthia Vanessa's dream is that God will give her life to be able to get ahead.
