Jerobia's story

Jerobia is a small businesswoman who sells clothes and sews. She makes her sales in the Puerto Cabeza area where sales are good. Jerobia is working hard so that she can improve her home. She has the support of her family and her husband is an electrician. Through loans, she has been managing to build her home. She used her last loan to begin building the walls. She will continue this work with this new loan since the job is only half done. She will buy materials such as stone, sand, cement and iron to continue the job.
