Sheryl Denys
Sheryl has been part of the “Women of the Future” cooperative bank for six cycles. She has invested her loans very well, and her businesses have been growing successfully.

Our member is married, has two children and, at 29 years of age, is a crafts teacher in a small village within the city of Portoviejo. She does her work at night, traveling each day to undertake her labor, which she has been carrying for several years. She has time to study, and is completing a degree in business management while still tending to her home and small children.

Sheryl very much likes commerce and, since getting married 6 years ago, runs a business with her husband selling prawns. They started in the business because he worked at a prawn enterprise at a fishing port in the Manabi province. They started to save money when he decided to leave this job to start their own business. He now travels to purchase prawns by the case, which they sell by the pound to family and friends who are loyal buyers. Separate from this business, Sheryl also sells clothing, an enterprise she started approximately 2 years ago. This work is easy, because she already has a steady customer base. With this business, she also helps to support the family financially. Despite the fact that she is a mother, wife and teacher, she somehow manages to find time to handle everything.

With this new loan, Sheryl would be able to invest in buying herself a freezer to store her prawns. Her dream is to extend the business into other towns, but this requires a greater investment. They are thinking about paying for the freezer in cash. Another project planned is to have a sewing workshop alongside her mother, who has always motivated her. Sheryl is very sure that she will be able to make her dream a reality.
