Francisca's story

Francisca, 52, is a very hard-working and responsible person who likes to move forward with her family. Francisca lives with her children in Riobamba. Francisca has made a living making blocks and bricks for a long time. She learned this business from her parents and it is an important source of income for her family. Francisca needs to invest in the purchase of machinery to make blocks and bricks since the machinery she currently has is in disrepair and is delaying her production. With this investment she will be able to optimize her time and she can complete her orders on time. Francisca dreams of her children continuing with the business and that they become professionals.
