Yaqueline's story

Yaqueline is a young entrepreneur who wanted to set up her own business so that she could make income to help her parents cover their household expenses. In spite of the fact that Yaqueline works for a company during most of the day, in her free time she works in her business with the desire to make progress in it and, in the future, depend solely on it. Yaqueline has been selling clothing such as jeans, track suits, t-shirts, sweaters, etc. for approximately six years. Thanks to her business, she is able to make her own income. Owing to the good quality of her products, Yaqueline has a very good reputation amongst her customers. This has gained her more customers over time. Yaqueline faces a difficulty in recovering her portfolio because sometimes her customers fall behind in their payments and this means that she has no capital with which to continue working. However, she has been overcoming this difficulty by creating a good repayment culture amongst her customers. Thanks to the fact that a customer has made a large order for her products, Yaqueline needs to buy merchandise from her supplier because she doesn't have enough stock to fill the order. She hopes to receive a loan which will allow her to buy the clothing she needs to fill this big order from her customer.

Yaqueline hopes to be able to continue making income for her household so that she can improve her parents' quality of life. In addition, she dreams of growing her business and being able to open a large store where she can create jobs for those most in need. This would enable her to provide her parents with financial stability and great opportunities for making progress.
