Lourdes Maribel's story

Lourdes Maribel and her family live in Manta, a place known for its beautiful beaches and diverse food. Manta is very popular all year with tourists, but currently is less so due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lourdes Maribel is a hard-working woman who is looking for a way to help her husband succeed during this difficult situation. She has a store in their home where she sells fishing materials such as fish hooks, nets, bait, and many other items that her neighbors and acquaintances need for their fishing work. She also supplies her husband who is a fisherman.

This loan is to purchase fish hooks, thread, nets, string, and other fishing items.
