A loan of $575 helps to purchase oil, rice, sugar, and other groceries which she sells.


Jessica Dolores's story

Jessica Dolores is 67 years old, married, and has 3 children, all adults. Her spouse is a farmer. They live in the parish of Noboa, a place of hard-working people who work in the rural tasks and a place greatly affected by the effects of COVID-19 on its economy and the loss of lives.

She is a determined woman who does everything possible to earn her resources and, with them, get out of this difficult situation that this terrible pandemic has them in. On the weekends, she sets up a small stand. There, she sells oil, rice, sugar, and other groceries. She sells on these days, which are when most people leave the fields to make purchases. Part of this loan is also for the crops her spouse has. In the winter season, he plants corn and peanuts. For her, the quarantine was very difficult since for a long time she was unable to sell. Now things are improving, and so she hopes everything will continue.

This loan is to purchase oil, rice, sugar, and other groceries which she sells.
