Dolores Monserrate's story

Dolores Monserrate and her family live in Manta, a prosperous city visited by many tourists who like to enjoy its marvelous beaches. However, due to Covid-19 tourism has diminished.

Dolores is a very humble woman who, despite the adversities she is facing, continues onward to generate her own income. For that reason she continues in her business selling clothes for children and adults, as a street vendor. However, due to the sanitary measures imposed by the government and a fear of contagion, she decided to sell from her house in order to avoid contracting the virus.

For Dolores this has been very difficult, as her sales aren't what they used to be. Nevertheless, she continues forward as this is how she knows to make a living. This loan is to buy blouses, shorts, pants, and dresses, among other things. Dolores' dream is that her business progress.
