A loan helped to purchase pants, blouses, shirts, and shoes.


Josefina Alexandra's story

Josefina Alexandra and her family live in Montecristi Canton, a place known for its famous Panama hats. The area has been greatly impacted by the effects of Covid-19.

She is a hardworking woman seeking a way to earn income and help her husband with the household expenses, and she has achieved this, thanks to the loans. She makes her living selling clothing and shoes. She continued selling through social networks, and therefore her sales and profits decreased for a while. Now, she is already going out to sell because she makes better sales this way. She also sells jugs of water and ice cream from her home, whicb also helps her earn more money.

She will use this loan to purchase pants, blouses, shirts, and shoes.
