Jheny Maribel's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more fruit and rent a commercial space.

Jheny Maribel's story

Jheny is 27 years old and lives in Urcuqui canton, in Imbabura province, with her two daughters, who are ages four and six.

Urcuqui is an attractive place. Its residents work mainly in agriculture, trade, and tourism.

Jheny currently supports her daughters on her own, which is why she has to work a lot in order to cover her household expenses and her kids' education. She has a fruit stand at the local market and is requesting this loan to diversify her products and increase her sales capacity by renting a commercial space at a nearby university. This will allow her to bring home more income.

Jheny is very grateful for the help she will receive because it will facilitate her daughters' support and education.
