A loan helped to buy fishing materials in order to improve her work.


Lady Dayana's story

Dayana, age 21, lives in the Esmeraldas province with her life partner and her son.

Dayana experienced various difficulties in her house. She lost her equipment and personal items. She is currently recovering from this, and she lives in a small house that she rents.

Dayana devotes herself to selling seafood, especially shrimp. Her life partner goes out to fish every day.

Dayana needs a loan to buy materials and tools that are needed to continue with her fishing activity. It is the only financial support that they have to cover their family expenses.

Dayana is grateful for your help. She is happy to continue working and getting her family ahead in spite of the adversities.

It focuses on the poorest one-fifth of the population with no access to financial services.
