A loan helped to buy fabric and supplies for her seamstress shop.


Mariuxi Margarita's story

Mariuxi is 36 years old, married and has a four year old son. Her husband is an architect. They live in Manta, a prosperous city that is visited by many tourists who enjoy its marvelous beaches.

She is a very determined woman who does what she can to earn an income and help with household expenses. In spite of the difficult situation due to the health emergency, she is still working in her seamstress shop where she used to make all types of clothing. But, upon seeing that her business was not staying afloat because of the quarantine, she decided to start another type of business that would enable her to generate income. That is why she now works making masks, caps, and bio-protection suits as that is how she has managed to earn the income she needs to get ahead.

She will invest this loan in fabric and the supplies needed for her business. Her goals are to stay health and for her family to lack for nothing.
