A loan of $475 helps to buy shirts, blouses, pants, and children's clothing.


Beatriz Isabel's story

Beatriz Isabel is 32 years old. She's married and has an 11-year-old child. Her husband is a day laborer. They live in Portoviejo, a place with hard-working people dedicated to farm work, and a place that's been very much affected by Covid-19.

She is a hard-working woman who, along with her husband, looks for a way to earn her living and get her family ahead. She works selling clothing. She goes out the sell in her area, and also sells in her house and over social networks. She sells on credit and collects every 8 days. Thus, despite the fear of getting sick that she still feels, she continues with her business, as it's the only way that they're going to get ahead.

This loan is for buying shirts, blouses, pants, and children's clothing.
