A loan helped to buy new parts.


Maria Monserrate's story

María, 31, is in a common-law relationship. She has three children, ages 11, 5, and 3. Her husband's a driver. They live in the city of Manta, known for its beautiful beaches that have a lot of visitors every season of the year.

María's an enterprising person who every day looks for ways to be able to cover the household expenses. This is why two years ago, in addition to her job in mobile phones, she decided to start a business with her father's help to sell car parts for the town vehicles in the city.

Her business was impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, though, because her sales declined. This is why now she's requesting this loan to be able to reactivate it and continue earning the necessary income.

This loan is to buy new parts.

Her dream is for her business to progress and to give her children the best.
