A loan helped jars, cups, and packs of clothing.


Gabriela Nathaly's story

Gabriela Nathaly and her family live in Portoviejo, a city very affected by the earthquake on April 16, 2016, and now, by the covid-19 pandemic. The city is rich in production of vegetables, legumes and tropical fruits for internal consumption.

From her home, Gabriela Nathaly offers secondhand clothing of all types and brands. She works Monday through Saturday. She also sells household cleaning items such as bleach, detergents, soaps, etc. Previously, she sold a variety of catalog products. She also sold these through whatsapp and social media. Her client paid her on credit and she collected weekly. At the beginning of the health crisis, she was not able to sell due to various restrictions, but now she is following biosecurity protocols.

This loan will be used to purchase jars, cups, and AAA clothing packs that are of good quality. Her dream is to have her own home and that her family will have good health.
