Josseline Lissette's story

Josseline attended school until 9th grade. She is a single mother and her two children are students.

Josseline has a store in her house where she has sold basic products for 2 years. She attends to customers on a schedule of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and her children help her. Previously, she was an employee at a restaurant and raised pigs.

Josseline needs a loan to buy detergent, oil, eggs, rice, sugar, etc. to sell in her store.

She dreams of her children finishing the school year, of further stocking her store, and of improving her house.
