Yuly Elizabeth's story

El Carmen county stands out in agriculture. This is where plantains, coffee, cacao, corn and a large variety of fruits (pineapples, oranges, passion fruit, etc.) are grown. In livestock, the area is known for breeding cattle, horses, pigs and poultry. The members of the credit group Santa María meet in this beautiful place.

Yuly, who is 23 years old, lives here. She is in a committed relationship, has one daughter and is newly pregnant. Her partner tends a snack bar in a school.

Yuly is a good housekeeper who works preparing and selling snacks and fast food like dumplings, hornado (a pork dish), and corviches (a dish made out of green bananas and fish), among others. She also prepares lunches since she and her husband are in charge of running a snack bar at a local school. She works Monday through Friday from 6:00am until 3:00pm. Their business is three years old and is going very well. They vary the menu to keep the kids who are their regular customers from getting bored.

This loan is for buying oil, plantains, peanuts and other staples for food preparation. They have been with the credit group for one year. They like the group because it gives them support and accountability, medical services, support in case of emergencies and school credits. They dream of having a great restaurant.
