A loan helped to purchase bags of rice to sell.

Gloria Narcisa's story

Gloria Narcisa and her family live in Manta, a place with beautiful beaches and varied gastronomy, which is frequently visited throughout the year, but not so much now due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

She is a hardworking woman who strives together with her husband to get out of this difficult situation in which this pandemic still has them. Previously, she sold cheese and rice, but now she only sells rice by the quintal or bag. She and her husband buy wholesale on deposit, and then they conduct sales at their home or go out through the city and sell from a cart. In this way, they manage to earn a living, thanks to the loans, which have been a great help to them.

They will use this loan to purchase bags of rice to sell.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Eleanor Francoletti-Putz.

This loan is special because:

It helps borrowers withstand negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
