A loan of $1,150 helps to buy customer orders for purses, plastic containers, glasses, bracelets, chains, rings, etc.


Blanchi Nerolis's story

Blanchi Nerolis, 46, is divorced with three adult and independent children. She and her family live in Portoviejo, where she has her own house. The city was affected by an earthquake on April 16, 2016, and now by the COVID-19 pandemic.

To pay her expenses, she works selling Yanbal products (beauty products, cosmetics, perfumes, and women's accessories), Tupperware (plastic products for home and personal use), steel jewelry, bows, purses, etc. She works three days a week, two to three hours a day. She leaves her products on credit and collects payment every eight days.

She has experienced economic difficulties during this global crisis. Some of her customers have been unable to pay her because they lost their jobs, and others have died. At first, the health crisis was very hard for her because she could not sell her products, but now her business is gradually restarting and she hopes to continue earning income.

This loan is to buy customer orders for purses, plastic storage containers, glasses, bracelets, chains, rings, etc. Her dream is for her family to be healthy and for her business to go back to the way it was before the pandemic.
