Graciela Pilar's story

Graciela Pilar is 27 years old, she is married and has 2 children who are 17 and 8 years old. Her husband is a private employee. They live in the canton of Jaramijó, a place of beautiful beaches and varied cuisine, a place that is still very affected by the pandemic caused by Covid 19.
She is a hard-working woman who looks for a way to earn her resources and with them help her family to get ahead. She has a grocery store in her house, there she sells basic necessities. For her the beginning of this pandemic was very hard since she could not open or sell. She is now selling more normally, and although she still feels fear, she always does so with the best biosecurity measures.
This loan is to buy products such as rice, sugar, oil, etc. She hopes she will continue to be supported with the loans.
