Esmeralda De Jesús's story

Esmeralda de Jesús G. C., age 28, resides in Santiago Nonualco in the department of La Paz. She lives with her husband, who works in an automobile repair shop, and also with their three children, ages 10, 8, and 4. She is a very hardworking woman who has a shop in her home selling assorted goods. She began the business with the aim of offering help to her husband, especially in these times of so many economic difficulties.

Esmeralda is applying for a loan because she wishes to stock her business by purchasing other products like shoes, more drinks, and canned goods, among other things that are greatly needed by her customers. Esmeralda is eager to improve her sales because she wants to be able to give her children everything they need, something which is impossible to offer them with only the earnings of her husband.
