Jenny Group's story

This group is made up of three hard-working women. Jenny is the group's president. She is an entrepreneurial, cooperative and cheerful person. Jenny is 22 years old, single, and lives with her 7-month-old daughter. She lives in the city of Ibarra, the capital of Imbabura province, in the north of Ecuador.

Jenny works from home buying and selling cosmetics. This helps her to provide for her daughter. This is the first loan that Jenny has requested from Fodemi and she will use it to buy perfumes, deodorants and creams to increase the products she sells in her business so that she can make more sales and more income.

Jenny's dream is to have a large cosmetics business and to use the profits that she makes to continue supporting her daughter and provide her with the best in life.

In this group: Jenny Alejandra, Viviana Elizabeth, Estela Maruja
