Wendy Yamileth's story

Wendy Yamileth López P. is 21 years old. She is a very responsible and resourceful young woman who lives with her grandparents, Don Rafael and Niña Carmen, who are 70 and 68 respectively. Also living with them is her sister Fatima, who recently gave birth to a daughter also named Fatima. All of them are financially dependent on the store that Wendy established in their home.

She sells daily consumer products. Her business is doing very well and she dedicates herself to providing good service to her customers, since she is becoming more recognized each day. Wendy has discovered that her business is good way for her to look after her grandparents. Her store is located near a school, which gives her an opportunity to increase her sales. However, she needs additional merchandise in order to attract new business. For this reason, Wendy is requesting her first loan so that she can buy new products that customers are demanding.
