A loan helped to buy sneakers in various sizes and colors.


Wendy Tatiana's story

Wendy Tatiana, 21, is in a common-law relationship. Her partner's a fisherman. They live in Jaramijó Canton, a very lovely place because of its beautiful beaches, but that also was very affected by the health crisis caused by Covid-19.

Wendy Tatiana's an enterprising woman who makes an effort every day to support her partner with the household expenses, which is why she has had a business selling sneakers for several years. She used to make sales as a street vendor but currently is working from her home because during the Covid-19 pandemic her business declined due to biosafety issues, and her income went down drastically.

That's why now she's requesting a new loan to have more merchandise in her business. She's going to invest this loan in a purchase of sneakers in various sizes and colors.

Her dream is to continue to grow with her business and to have her own home.
