Gimena Nuriyeth
Gimena is a 21-year-old young woman and is married with one small daughter who is barely 1 year old. She finished her elementary education but couldn't continue studying, since she started a family at an early age.

With the help of her husband, who works in farming, she was able to start a small rubber shoe business to generate more income and be able to help her husband with the household expenses. He makes very little, sinse he earns money during harvest time only and doesn't have a monthly income. In her area, rubber shoes are in high demand. They are profitable and easy to sell, considering their prices and the financial standard of living of her community.

Gimena learned her trade through her parents, since they are also entrepreneurs and very hard-working. Since she was very little, she helped them with their business, which is located in the community's public market. The market is 20 minutes from her house, which allows her to be there early in the morning.

Gimena is now asking for help to be able to invest in her small business by buying rubber shoes. By so doing, she will be able to offer her customers a better and restocked assortment of goods. With your help, Gimena will be able to improve the amount of sales and also the stability of her business.

Her dreams are to educate her young daughter so that she has a better quality of life, better job opportunities, and can become better every day. Her goal is that through the profits that her business brings her she can save in a savings cooperative and thereby have her own house in the future.

More information about this loan

These loans are designed for young Honduran women between ages 16 and 29 who want to start their own businesses to launch their careers. COMIXMUL offers training sessions through its sister organization FUDEIMFA that will culminate in clients writing their own business plans and receiving their first loans. The main difference between this product and other COMIXMUL loans is that the institution normally requires the client to already have an established business in order to be eligible for a loan. However, COMIXMUL is waiving this requirement for young women who attend the training sessions.
