A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase leg warmers and jackets since she already has requests for these items during this holiday season.


Sandra Maricela's story

Sandra is a 25 year old mother who lives alone with her five year old daughter in Otavalo Province in Imbabura. She is described as a friendly and responsible person who enjoys her work.

She works alone as a street vendor selling clothing. She started this business when she had her daughter and it generates her only income to support, feed and educate her child. This is her third loan request to Fodemi and it will be used to purchase leg warmers and jackets, because requests for these items increase during this season and she is able to earn a good income for her daughter and cover household necessities.

Sandra’s dream is to have her own shop where she can sell her merchandise and improve her quality of life.
