Monica Lissette's story

Monica Lissette is 27 years old and a single mother with two children aged one and eight years old. She lives with her parents in Jipijapa, a place that was severely affected by the health emergency caused by COVID-19.

Monica Lissette is a very responsible and enterprising woman. Despite being both mother and father to her two children, she is looking for ways to get them ahead. She is completing her rural service in a public health institution where she is graduating with a degree in nursing.

In order to have more income for her household, she decided to start a business selling products from the Avon and Yanbal catalogs, offering the products to her colleagues and relatives. Monica Lissette has managed to get ahead even though her sales are not like they were before because of the health emergency. However, she is not losing hope that her sales will improve, so she needs to invest to offer her products.

This loan is for investing in catalog products such as creams, makeup and perfume, among other items. Her dreams are to have a shop, to be able to invest and to continue supporting her children.
