Jomayra Josefina's story

This client is from the city of Portoviejo. She started out with $500 in capital selling to her neighbors. Little by little she requested loans from communal banks to grow to the extent she has to this day. She works alone from Wednesday to Sunday from 10am. She’s in a common law relationship and her spouse is in the same line of work going to the areas in their zone that are farthest from their residence. They have a little boy that will have his second birthday soon and she’s six-month’s pregnant. She needs the loan to buy sheets, awnings and other merchandise for her business.
