A loan helped to buy water jugs and bolos [frozen treats].


Fernanda Elizabeth's story

Fernanda is 35 years old, lives in free union, and has 4 minor children. Her partner is a fisherman. They live in a family-member house in the canton of Jaramijo, a beautiful place where all inhabitants are very humble and hard-working people who work in the seafood business.

Fernanda is a woman who strives daily to earn her own financial resources. This is why, 5 years ago, she decided to start a small business at her house selling water jugs and bolos [frozen treats]. Despite the pandemic, her sales were not affected because her closest neighbors always buy water jugs. Thanks to this loan, she will be able to continue her business.

Fernanda will invest this loan in the purchase of water jugs and bolos [frozen treats]. Her dreams are for the business to thrive and to be able to distribute water jugs in multiple areas.
