A loan of $1,100 helps to buy clothing, sneakers, and household items.


Judith Alexandra's story

Judith is 39 years old. She is a single mother and has two children, 10 and 9 years old. They live in a relative's house in Manta, one of the most important cities on the coast of Ecuador in terms of business and tourism, but it has been affected by the pandemic.

Judith is a self-driven woman who works hard every day to provide for her children. This is why for 5 years she has owned a business selling clothing, sneakers, and household items. She has a small store out of her house, but when the quarantine started, she had to close her shop for some time. Currently, she has opened her store again. This is why she is requesting a new loan, in order to revive her business.

She will invest this loan in buying clothing, sneakers, and household items. Her dream is for her business to improve again and to be able to provide the best for her children.
