Jenny is 25 years old and has a store in the front part of her house. She lives in an area outside the central city called Paraíso, which is characterized by dirt paths and a deteriorating ecology.
Her husband emigrated to Spain to have more work opportunities. When he obtained work, he sent money to Jenny so that she could have her own business. With this working capital, she bought groceries in order to establish a small store. Little by little, with much effort, she was able to expand her store to include produce and chickens. She works in her store from Monday through Sunday.
With the loan, she wants to buy rice, chickens and sugar for her business. In the future, she would like to buy a piece of land to construct a home for her mother.
