Smith Julieth's story

Julieth lives in the town of Caldas, Antioquia Department, with her spouse; they have a one-year-old son. Julieth is a young entrepreneur who decided five months ago that besides being a housewife she wanted to contribute to the household economy and decided to start selling merchandise, especially clothes and accessories.

Julieth dreams with opening her own variety store in the town of Carepa and despite the difficulty in getting merchandise that she has to go all the way to Medellín to get she struggles to acquire the capital she needs to make her dream come true.

At present, she requested a loan to buy more products before the Christmas season arrives because during that time the trip to Medellín is even more difficult and things there are more expensive because of the season. In addition, Julieth is sure that sales in her town will be larger and her income will improve.
