Jacqueline Tomasa
Jacqueline was born and continues living in Libertad. At 36 years old she has a stationary store located in her home. Jacqueline told us that the business arose from the need to support her children.

Three years after a terrible accident that left her a widow, she decided to open the stationary store. This was the best decision since the business distracted her and kept her busy. Her business hours are from Monday to Saturday from 9 in the morning until 7 in the evening. She told us that the business serves her without problems and sometimes her children help her in their free time. She has two children who are 7 and 5 years old that attend the public school near her home. We asked her if she had any problems in the neighborhood and she told us that it is not very safe. She hopes that with the loan she will buy notebooks and pencils, and products for schoolchildren like an ice cream machine to begin the sale of ice creams. Her future dream is to grow the business that she has because it is her only economic livelihood.
