A loan helped to buy pants, t-shirts, blouses, children's clothing, and other garments.


Melanie Romina's story

Melanie Romina and her family live in Jipijapa Canton, known as the Sultana del Café because of its coffee-producing tradition--and a place that has also been very affected by Covid-19.

She's a hardworking young woman who, despite problems, looks for how to earn her own resources and help her parents with the household expenses that way. She manages this thanks to the loans, which help her a lot.

She has a store in the city where she sells clothing. When the quarantine started she was in a bad situation because she couldn't open her store and she was only selling via social media, which caused her sales to decline a lot. Now she managed to open her store and her sales are improving as time goes by.

This loan is to buy pants, t-shirts, blouses, children's clothing, and other garments.
