A loan helped to purchase fruits and vegetables.

Alejandra Eduvis's story

Alejandra Eduvis and her family live in Jipijapa, a place known as the Sultana of Coffee, and a place greatly affected by the pandemic caused by COVID-19.

She is a woman who, despite her age, gets ahead trying to earn a living and, despite the difficulties like this current pandemic, she continues and it is thanks to the loans that allow her to finance her business. She and her spouse work selling vegetables and fruits. They have a stand in the local market.

For them, the quarantine was too difficult since, for a long time, they were unable to work, both for the government measures and due to their age they didn't want to be exposed. But, now it is necessary for them to go out and work, which they do with great care and caution.

This loan is to purchase fruits and vegetables. She hopes to continue being healthy to continue on.
