Leidy Fernanda's story

Fernanda is a 35-year-old divorced mother who is the head of her household. She is known for being friendly, enterprising, supportive, responsible, and tenacious. Fernanda lives with her younger child who is a dependent.

Since separating from her children’s father, Fernanda has had to play the role of both father and mother to her two children. The love for her children is what motivated her to start a business of selling clothes more than three years ago. She conducts her business from 8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. and sometimes later. Fernanda sells at the community fairs in the areas near where she lives. She also travels throughout the city to sell clothes and generate income.

Fernanda lacks operating capital, so she is requesting a loan to buy more blouses, stockings, undergarments, leggings, jackets, and other garments. In this manner, she hopes to improve her family’s income.
