A loan helped to buy plantain chips, fish, ground corn, and cassava.


Edwin Steven's story

Edwin Steven and his family live in the canton of Jipijapa, a place that was severely affected by the health emergency caused by COVID-19.

Edwin Steven is a hardworking man who seeks to earn a living so that his family can get ahead. Thanks to the loans, he has been able to achieve this goal. He has a business of preparing and selling plantain chips with roasted fish and salad. He now wants to reopen his business since he had to close during the pandemic. During the days of quarantine, he was not able to sell. Now he takes great care in selling his delicacies to the likes of his customers. He also continues to sell ground corn and cassava.

This loan will be used to buy plantain chips, fish, ground corn, and cassava.
