Jessica Carolina's story

The young woman, Jessica Carolina V., is 24 years old, single, and lives with her brothers in her mother's house. Her mother is settled in the USA, so they live alone. Jessica graduated from high school and has been working in business for a year, selling perfume and lotion on credit in different districts and neighborhoods in San Lorenzo City. Every morning, Jessica goes out on her bicycle to sell her products. She needs a loan right now to be able to go to the border of El Salvador to buy more merchandise to have a greater variety of products. She has a lot of clients because her prices are cheap and her lotions smell good. Jessica would very much like to prosper, and she hopes to meet a good man to marry so they can prosper together. She has an empty look in her eyes because, as she says, she misses her mother a lot.
