A loan of $1,300 helps to stock up her store with products such as rice, sugar, milk, etc.


Lorena Victoria's story

Lorena Victoria is 48 years old and she is in a common-law marriage. From this relationship she has three children, ages 19, 18, and 10 years. Her husband is a farmer; they live in Pajan, a place where the people are dedicated to farming and the sales of their products. This place has also been terribly afflicted by the health crisis occasioned by Covid-19.

She is a hardworking woman who, facing the terrible crisis we are all currently living through, gathers her strength to help her husband and together struggle through. She has a food store in her house where she sells a great variety of basic necessities. At first she had to close, then later she began to make sales again, and although she cannot sell in her usual fashion, at least she is managing to earn what her family needs.

This loan is to stock up her store with products such as rice, sugar, leche, etc. And to carry on, thanks to the loans.
