A loan helped to purchase natural products.


Luisa Geoconda's story

Luisa Geoconda and her family live in Los Bajos de Montecristi, a place that is inhabited by humble people who work in the fields and make handicrafts. It is a place that was also heavily impacted by the effects of Covid 19.

Luisa Geoconda is a determined woman who, despite how difficult things get, keeps going. It is thanks to loans that she can manage to do so. Luisa Geoconda sells natural products. She continues selling by telephone and social media because she is still afraid to go out and sell like she used to.

Currently, things have improved a little. Luisa Geoconda hopes that they will continue this way and not return to the severe quarantine that affected her so greatly.

The purpose of this loan is to purchase natural products. Luisa Geoconda hopes she can continue to count on the help of loans and that she and her family will continue to be in good health.
