Yomaira Isabel's story

Yomaira Isabel is married and has 2 children who are of young age. Her husband works in the fishing industry. They live in Machalilla, a place with beautiful beaches which are now deserted due to the covid 19 emergency.

She is a hardworking woman who despite of difficulties, seeks a way to earn money so that she can help her husband during this tough situation in which they find themselves during the pandemic. Before, she sold natural medicine but now she sells clothes and shoes by catalogue and Avon products, (perfumes, creams, costume jewellery and cosmetics).

Before the health emergency she went out around the city to sell and in her home she has some display cases. She now offers her products on social media and delivers them from her home or to other people’s homes. Although her sales are not the same, she continues on for the good of her family.

This loan is to buy clothes, shoes, perfumes, creams and costume jewellery among other products.
