Esmeralda Yamileth's story

Esmeralda is single and has 2 children who depend on her. She has been selling staple products for a year and learned this from a friend. The supplier delivers her orders twice a week. She tends to her clients from 6:30 in the morning to 5:30 in the afternoon, and a sister helps her at times.
Esmeralda will use the loan to buy corn, rice, sugar, oil, detergents, etc., to sell in her store.
Esmeralda dreams of giving her children a good education and continuing to invest in the store.
