Ysabel Herlinda's story

Ysabel is a member of The Flowers cooperative bank. Ysabel is married, 44 years old, and has five children. The oldest who is 23 works, and the ones ages 16, 14, 12 and 5 are studying at the public school. Ysabel started out selling shoes because her daughter bought by catalog and decided to sell shoes also. In the mornings, she cooks for a restaurant. Since she started with Finca, she has learned how to invest and be responsible with her loans. Ysabel needs a loan of 2,800 soles to buy shoes from catalogs, and also wants to open a bookstore in her house. Ysabel’s dream is to have a buffet business in her home, because she has her daughter who is special.
