A loan helped to buy sheets of paper, ink, notebooks, and other office and school supplies to sell.


Yadira Jahaira's story

Yadira Jahaira is in a common-law marriage and, from this relationship, has two minor children. Her spouse is a merchant. They live in Manta, a place with beautiful beaches and varied cuisine, but also a place very much affected by the pandemic caused by Covid-19.

She is a very hard-working woman who, together with her spouse, looks for a way to get ahead. Previously, she sold cosmetics, but now has a copy shop in a rented space, and it's open to the public from Monday to Sunday. There, in addition to making copies, she also sells school supplies and office supplies. She always works with a smile, and offers the best cleaning and sanitation practices, as, because of what's happened this past year, they continue taking a lot of precautions because they are afraid of getting sick.

This loan is for buying sheets of paper, ink, notebooks, and other school and office supplies to sell.
