A loan of $1,200 helped a member purchase clothing and sneakers.

Yhiret Group's story

Yesenia began selling sneakers thanks to a friend who taught her about that kind of business; she would buy a quantity of sneakers at a lower price and then she would offer them to friends and family by going door to door. She reserves the product with a down payment and the balance is given in payments, and in this manner she makes more profit, and in this same way they have begun to request clothing and other products. This is how she decided to open a store in her own home, and then began to travel to Trujillo because they would request good quality shoes. Little by little she gained more clients and her business prospered a lot. Unfortunately, when her daughter became ill she had to leave the business and dedicate herself to her family. After some time she has returned to the business but only in-home sales and it is going well because her clients are OK with that. With her income she has achieved economic stabilty as well as being able to help her husband with the construction of their own home.

In the future Yesenia would like to have a restaurant that serves traditional food; she has taken a course to be a chef and would like to serve as one. It is for this reason that she is saving money because she wishes to buy an adequate piece of land where she can build her restaurant. She and 8 partners are members of the group “YHIRET”. She has been with EDAPROSPO for close to 4 years and is happy with the support that she has received from this entity. Now she will use her loan in order to buy clothes and sneakers since she already has orders to fulfill. The school year is a good time for her business and she will take full advantage of this time.
