Yesenia started her business in order to earn enough income to pay for her expenses because she was unable to find a job. Since she has always liked retail, she decided to start selling denim apparel three years ago in the street markets. Her business is currently prosperous.

She needs a loan of $250.00 USD, which she will repay in 6 months, in order to purchase a protective structure for the denim stand that she has in the market, thus allowing her to protect herself from inclement weather.

Translated from Spanish by Elizabeth Casian, Kiva Volunteer.

Yesenia inició el negocio para tener una actividad que le diera un ingreso para pagar sus gastos por que no conseguía trabajo y como siempre le han gustado las ventas decidió hace tres años empezar a vender ropa de mezclilla en los tianguis ropa y actualmente le va bien.

Ella necesita un préstamo por US $250 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar una estructura para el puesto de ropa que tiene en los mercados y así poder protegerse de las inclemencias del tiempo.
