A loan helped to purchase jugs of purified water.


Deyter Damian's story

Deyter Damian is 24 years old, single, and has one 4-year-old child. They live in Portoviejo, a city affected by the earthquake of April 16, 2016 and now by the COVID-19 pandemic. The city is rich in the production of vegetables, legumes, and tropical fruits for domestic consumption.

At his house, Deyter Damian has a space where he sells purified water in jugs. He makes deliveries to homes on a motorcycle he owns. He works every day.

At first the social distancing left him without work due to the fear of the virus and various restrictions which prevented going out to sell. But, currently he is working with the biosafety protocols.

This loan is to purchase jugs of purified water. His dream is that his business continues growing and for his family to be very healthy.
