Patricia Del Rocio's story

Patricia Del Rocio and her family live in 24 de Mayo, a location where working people are dedicated, in the majority, to agriculture. The city has been very badly affected by Covid-19, both economically and in the loss of lives.

Patricia is a working woman who is seeking a way to earn her resources and to help her husband cover household expenses. It is thanks to these loans that she manages to do this.

Patricia sells shoes and clothing, and has continued to do so by selling through social networks. Due to the pandemic, her sales and earnings fell off, but now things are improving. She goes out to sell in order to achieve better sales and, although she remains afraid due to the pandemic, she does so because this is the only way to earn a living.

This loan is for purchasing shoes, pants, shirts, blouses, and underwear, among other items of clothing to sell.l
