Lucia Margarita's story

Lucia Margarita and her family live in Los Bajos de Montecristi. It is a place of humble people who earn their living from working the land. They have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

She is a hard-working woman who together with her husband manage to get ahead thanks to the loans which help finance their business and earn a living. They have a stall in the market in Manta where they sell fruit, vegetables and other staple products. They are managing to get ahead doing this in the difficult situation that the pandemic has brought about.

This loan will be used to buy fruit and vegetables. Their dream is to provide the best for their children.
