Ana Germania's story

Ana Germania is 20 years old. She is single and lives at home with her parents in the city of Machalilla, a place of beautiful beaches that are frequented by tourists and that now are deserted because of the COVID-19 emergency.

She is a young worker who is looking for a way to earn a living and thus help her family to get ahead. She has a grocery store together with her mama in their home which now is more stocked as during quarantine they were low on supplies and various products were discarded since for many days they kept the business closed which is still not very satisfactory, but at least it helps them cover the household expenses.

This loan is to stock the store with products such as rice, oil, milk, etc. She hopes that things return to the way they used to be.
