A loan helped to buy clothing (polo shirts, shirts, pants, and more), because she wants to have a variety.


Jóvenes Emprendedores Group's story

Bethi belongs to the "Jóvenes Emprendedores" communal bank. Her friend and colleague Jannt is its representative. The communal bank is in its first cycle and it is made up of 15 members.

Bethi is 37 years old. She lives with her husband and their two children, the oldest aged 20, and the youngest aged 6. She has had her own business she started 10 years ago, buying and selling clothing like pants, polo shirts, shirts, dresses and more. Her little store is located in the front part of her house. She usually sells every day, and as a second source of income, she has a small space she rents out. Her husband is a bricklayer and they both are seeking the best for their children. The oldest is in school so that he can have a good profession.

At this time, Bethi is asking for a loan to stock her business by buying clothing that will help her to have a wider variety to provide to her customers. One of her dreams is also to save up to buy some farmland so that she can have an additional source of income for her children's education.

Bethi considers herself to be a productive and responsible woman.
