Guillermina's story

Guillermina is 63 years old. She went to school up to the eighth grade. She is single and has one child, who lives with her. Her daughter-in-law and her granddaughter also live with her.

Guillermina sells plated jewelry in her municipality and the surrounding areas. She has practiced this profession for several years and has gained many customers. In addition, she is an employee at a business that sells clothing.

Guillermina will use the loan to purchase a greater variety of plated jewelry products to continue selling. She was supported previously by six loans. She has finished paying back five of them, and she is almost finished paying back the most recent one. She dreams of having a fixed location to make her sales.
