Karen Johana's story

Karen Johana is 26 years old, married and has 2 children, ages 8 and 4. Her husband is a carpenter, they live in Jipijapa, a place very affected by the health emergency caused by Covid 19.
She is a working woman who seeks a way to earn her resources and with them help her husband with the expenses of the home. She works selling shoes. After the pandemic began, she started using social networks, which she still does, but now she is already going out to sell since that way she achieves better sales and although she continues with great fear, she does it since that is how she manages to earn a living.
This loan is to buy shoes in various models and sizes. She hopes to continue with the help of the loans.
