Amarilis Del Establo Group's story

Yacquelin is single and 24 years old. She has an 8-year-old son who she is raising by herself and for whom she is putting all her efforts to get ahead. She is a member of the "Amarilis del Establo" group, which is made up of residents of the El Establo zone in the district of Carabayllo. She has been chosen by the other members as secretary of the governing board of her group.
Yacquelin sells salchipapas (local fast-food dish of thinly sliced pan-fried hot dogs and French fries) every night from her sandwich cart in front of her house. Since she was a little girl she helped her parents in this business and six months ago she started her own. It has not gone too badly and she has been able to expand her business by also selling soft drinks. This work has allowed her to pay for her son´s school and for her home.
The loan she is requesting will be used to buy supples for her business at wholesale.

In this group: Jacquelin Luzmila, Olga Lidia, Maria Neri, Marisabel Aida, Guisela Gerarda, Deysi Olinda, Simeon*, Jessica , Edwin Jesus
