A loan of $1,325 helps to purchase clothing, plastic storage containers, spoons, lunchboxes, cups and other Tupperware items.


Shirley Lourdes's story

Shirley Lourdes is 48 years old and married, with one adult son. Her husband is engaged in fishing. They live in Puerto López, a place whose inhabitants make a living from tourism and fishing. The city was greatly affected by Covid-19.

Shirley Lourdes is a hard-working woman who likes to earn income in order to help her husband to get through this difficult situation caused by this pandemic that is not yet over. It is thanks to loans that she is accomplishing this.

Shirley Lourdes sells clothing and Tupperware products (plastic goods). The beginning of the pandemic was very difficult for her since she could not sell. Eventually, she was able to sell so she keeps waiting for this to be over and things to be as they were before.

The purpose of this loan is to purchase clothing, plastic storage containers, spoons, lunchboxes, cups and other Tupperware items.
