Narcisa De Jesus's story

Narcisa De Jesus and her family live in Portoviejo. The city was struck by an earthquake on April 16, 2016 and now by the COVID-19 pandemic. The city is an important producer of greens, vegetables and tropical fruit for national consumption.

Narcisa De Jesus sells a variety of clothing products for women, men and children, stainless steel jewellery and products from catalogs like Belcorp (lbel, Cyzone, Esika) (beauty products, cosmetics, perfume and women's accessories). She sells every day. She leaves the products with her customers and collects every week. The social isolation at the beginning [of the pandemic] left her without work for fear of getting sick. But she is now working following health protocols.

This loan will be used to buy t-shirts, pants, bracelets, jewellery sets, pyjamas, etc. Her dream is to have a shop at her house and for her family to enjoy good health.
