A loan helped to buy pajamas, pants, shirts, dresses, and other items.


Pascual Heriberto's story

Pascual, age 59, is separated and has four grown children. They live in the city of Manta, which is well-known for its beautiful beaches that are highly frequented during all seasons of the year.

Pascual is a man who, facing the adversities that are happening, gets ahead for the good of his family. That is why he decided 30 years ago to undertake a business of selling clothes for children and adults. He has a small place located in the center of the city, a very profitable area. However, due to the pandemic he had to close his place for a time to avoid contagion. Now he is once again taking up his work with all of the biosecurity measures.

That is why he is requesting this loan to invest in his business. This loan is to buy pajamas, pants, shirts, dresses, and other items. His dream is for his business to continue progressing.
