Yaneth De Jesus's story

Yaneth is a person who has always fought to move her family ahead. Some time ago her children’s father abandoned her and she became a single mother head of household in charge of two children who are 4 and 7 years old. Since then Yaneth has worked to generate income sufficient to meet their needs. However, income has not been the best so she’s barely been able to meet their most basic needs.

Yaneth sells catalogue products like deodorants, lotions, shampoo and hand creams, among others; thanks to this she generates income. However, Yaneth wants to diversify the products she offers her customers so wants to increase the amount of products she sells.

Yaneth wants to buy stationery supplies for the upcoming school term that’s about to start but she does not have enough capital to do so. She is hoping for a loan that will make it possible for her to buy stationery supplies like notebooks, construction paper and erasers, among others.

Yaneth dreams with earning better income to be able to offer her two children a good education and economic stability because she does not want them to have to face the adversities she’s had to.
