Jessenia Elizabeth's story

Jessenia Elizabeth is 21 years old, she is in a relationship and she has a 7 year old son. Her partner works in the fishing industry. They live in the city of Machalilla, a place with beautiful beaches which are now deserted due to the emergency caused by covid 19.

She is a hardworking woman who seeks to earn an income and with it help her husband to get ahead. She sells clothes. Before the pandemic, she went out and sold around the city. She now only sells through social media. She offers her products and delivers them, this way she manages to earn something which helps her cover urgent household costs.

This loan is to buy trousers, blouses, t-shirts and children's clothes.
