Jenny Cecilia's story

Jenny is a member of the 24 de Octubre Community Bank. Jenny is 40, in a common law marriage, and has three children. Her children are 17, 15, and 4; they attend the state school.

Jenny has undertaken another business, which is the sale of handicrafts like baskets of 'junco' (a water plant which is used when dry) and woven goods. She has known various people who make handicrafts, and she is placing orders with them. It is going well. She sells at fairs and at events that are organized by the municipality.

She needs a loan for 3,000 PEN to buy a shelves and handicrafts.

Jenny’s dream is to have her own house and to have a stable business.
