Nelly Rosario's story

Nelly is a hardworking woman from the San Miguel de los Bancos settlement, located in the north western part of the Pichincha province. She is 32 years old and the single mother of four children for whom she works hard daily to provide them a good future. She was married but had a bad relationship with her husband and it led to her separation and she had to find a way to pay her household expenses. She does photography, voice, audio and video editing and she is also a program promoter and does this every day to support her family. When her husband left, it was a hard blow and that she overcame through her daily effort. She works ten hours a day, which leaves her little free time, but as a responsible mother takes advantage of it to spend time playing sports with her daughters. Editing videos is difficult for her because she doesn’t have the proper equipment so she is asking for a loan to buy this equipment that will certainly provide her with the opportunity to serve more customers and increase her earnings. Her greatest dream is to have a home of her own and have all the necessary equipment and be able to do the work from the comfort of her home. Nelly is grateful to Fundación Alternativa for the support and help they have given so she can do this.
