Jaqueline's story

Jaqueline is a single mother and head of the family, with one four-year-old child whom she has always needed to support on her own as his father has never contributed anything financially towards his support. On seeing that she needed to generate income for her household, Jaqueline started selling personal care products through catalogs. Thanks to this, she generated sufficient income to support her child. Bit by bit, she has been able to improve her business, and now she has been able to open a miscellany store where she sells personal care products for such as grooming tools, women's accessories, and also stationery products. Thanks to this, her sales have increased considerably, and her child has been able to enjoy a better quality of life. With the intent of having her business well-stocked with stationery inventory for the start of the school year, Jaqueline wants to stock up her miscellany store with these products. However, she doesn't have sufficient capital to undertake the purchase of these products for her customers. It is for this reason that Jaqueline has the hope that a loan will give her the possibility of being able to purchase stationery products such as notebooks, cards, pens, and scratch pads, among other things, and she will be able to be well-stocked for the start of the academic year. Jaqueline hopes that her business' sales will continue to grow, so that she can continue moving her child ahead in life. Additionally, she dreams that her child will be able to receive a quality education, and in the future attend university.
