Yolanda Jessenia's story

Yolanda Jessenia is 37 years old. She is a widow and has three children from this relationship. They live in el Carmen, a place of hard-working people who earn a living farming and raising animals. They are getting ahead little by little despite being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

She is a fighter who tries to provide the best for her children. No matter how hard things are she continues to fight. She earns a living selling clothing and underwear for adults. In this way she manages to pay the household expenses. But she now needs this loan to buy a laptop to be used by her eldest daughter for her studies. She is studying dentistry at a nearby university. Without the machine she she can't continue her classes as they are still online so she doesn't have the equipment needed to continue studying.

This loan will be used to buy a laptop. Her dream is for her daughter to become an excellent professional.
