Yaneisy Maybeth's story

Yaneisy Maybeth is a 21 year old single mother of a three-year-old child. She lives at home with her parents in the Canton of Jaramijo, a beautiful place whose inhabitants are humble and hardworking people.

Yaneisy Maybeth is a responsible and hardworking young woman, who pushes herself to earn her own resources; so, two years ago she started her business selling shoes, clothing for children and adults, and quilts. When she has time she goes out to offer her merchandise to her neighbors, friends, and close family members, which allows her to sell on credit and make collections twice a month. She feels very grateful for the support of the loans she has received because the loans enable her to work and thus to increase her income.

This loan is for the purchase of shoes, a variety of clothing, and quilts. Yaneisy Maybeth's dream is to provide the best for her child so that the child never has to go without.
