Alisson Carolina's story

Alisson Carolina is in a common-law relationship and from this relationship has three minor children. Her partner is a mechanic. They live in Manta, a place with beautiful beaches and varied cuisine. It is still strongly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

She is a hard-working woman who looks for a way to earn her resources and use them to help her partner get ahead. In spite of how difficult things still are because of the pandemic she earns a living selling clothing, shoes, cosmetics and other products from catalogs. Her method of selling is going door-to-door and from her house. Since the pandemic started she began to sell through social media which she is still doing as in this way she can generate enough sales. She sells on credit and collects every eight days and in this manner she manages to make a living.

The loan will be used to buy pants, t-shirts, blouses, dresses, shoes, cosmetics and jewellery.
