A loan helped to buy orders for clothes in different sizes and styles.


Antonia Auxiliadora's story

Antonia Auxiliadora, age 26, is in a common law relationship and has one child, age 2 years. Her husband is a clinical psychologist, but because he does not have a job, he repairs shoes. They live in their own house in Rocafuerte, known far and wide for its traditional artisanal sweets made from recipes passed generation to generation, and for growing rice.

Antonia Auxiliadora works selling assorted clothing for women, men, and children. She sells house-to-house in various areas, on credit. She has had financial difficulties during the worldwide crisis. Her clients could not pay because they had no work; others died. The health crisis at first was very bad for her because she could not sell, but now little by little she is reactivating to be able to continue generating income.

This loan is to buy orders for clothes in different sizes and styles. Her dream is that her husband will find stable work as a clinical psychologist, and that her family will have good health.
