Marciana Del Rocio's story

Marciana Del Rocio is 39 years old and separated, with two children, ages 15 and 12. They live in Machalilla, a place with beautiful beaches and tourist attractions that are still deserted due to the emergency caused by Covid 19.

Marciana Del Rocio is a determined woman who does not give up but looks for ways to earn a living for herself and her children given that she must be both mother and father and only by working can she keep going.

Marciana Del Rocio has an establishment where she prepares and sells roast chicken, rice and vegetable stew, and other specialties that she prepares with a lot of love for her customers who know how delicious her cooking is and go to her venue to buy. For Marciana Del Rocio, the quarantine period was very hard because she could not open or sell. Now she is already selling a little more.

The purpose of this loan is to purchase ingredients to prepare food.
