Jessenia Margarita's story

Sra. Jessenia sells beauty products through catalogs, but she and her husband also own an oil change station where she is responsible for managing the business. They have owned their business for eight years. Every week they invest in lubricants, brake fluid, and spare parts for automobiles. They operate their small business out of their home, which is located near a mechanic, so this helps them to do well.

Jessenia wants to expand her business by offering batteries and tires. In the future, she would like to move to a larger location in the central part of the city at her parents’ house. With this loan, she will invest in motor oil, brake fluid, and custom automobile parts so that she can keep her business well-stocked. She and her husband have two children (ages 12 and 13) and have been married for 15 years.
