Jenny's story

Jenny is part of the “Visión al Futuro” communal bank in the city of Coronel. She’s been making desserts at home for six years and makes candy, pizza dough, picarones, facturitas, alfajores, and cakes among other things. Jenny sells her products on Fridays and Sundays from a cart that she takes from her home to the city center. On Wednesdays she sells her products to the workers at a hospital and in Coronel. They are her steady customers. She buys her merchandise and ingredients from distributors and a supplier who goes to her home to sell.

She will use the money from this loan to buy ingredients in large quantity, specifically flour, yeast, margarine, eggs, baking powder, and various delicacies. In this way she can work calmly without worrying about running out of anything. Her goals are to have a shop where she can make and sell her products.

Jenny lives with her husband and two children, ages 19 and 18, both of want to study at university.

Her dreams are to succeed in her business in order to earn more and enjoy a better financial situation. She also wants her children to have professional careers. She is very grateful for the loan through Fondo Esperanza, which will allow her to invest into her business and increase her earnings. She also attends the meetings in hopes of being more successful.
