Maritza Matilde's story

Maritza Matilde is 31 years old, married and has a 13 year old daughter. Her husband makes his living from fishing. They live in the city of Machalilla, an area with beautiful beaches that are currently deserted due to the emergency caused by Covid-19.

She is an industrious woman who looks for ways to earn an income and help her husband get out in front of this pandemic. She has a grocery store in her home where she sells basic foodstuffs. This health crisis left her in a very bad situation. In the beginning she could not make any sales, then she started selling and continues to do so and although she is fearful of getting sick she does it for her family's wellbeing.

She will use this loan to buy products such as rice, milk, tuna, etc.
