Yesenia Marisol
Yesenia is a 37 year old woman. She studied until Grade Nine. She is married, her husband is a carpenter. She has two children, aged 13 and 8, who attend school. She lives with her husband and children and the children depend on her support.

Yesenia has been selling clothes, pastries, soft drinks and pupusas (a traditional food) etc. for more than 10 years. She learned her trade by intuition, at first she only sold clothing. She sells throughout her canton on foot. Her children help her. She sells from 1pm until 5pm every day.

Yesenia will use the loan to buy clothing, especially woman's clothing. While she is out selling pupusas, people ask her for clothing. So she can take advantage of this selling both things and increase her revenues. If the clothes selling goes well, she hopes to create a larger business and just sell clothes. She would use the revenue to support her children and help her husband as he has been sick.

El préstamo lo utilizara para comprar ropa especialmente de mujer; ya que cuando anda con la venta de pasteles la gente le pregunta por ropa, así ella podrá aprovechar de vender las dos cosas y generar más ganancias.

Si todo le funciona con la ropa, espera tener un canal de comercio mas grande y dedicarse solo a esa actividad y así con las ganancias podrá mantener a sus hijos y ayudar a su esposo que se encuentra mal de salud.
