Leidy Yureny's story

Leidy is a young entrepreneur who, with great effort, already has achieved a lot despite her young age. At 19 years old, Leidy is the owner of her business, which is a stationery store where she also has an internet cafe service. At the age of only 15 she began to work in this department store, and she did it while studying in the morning and working in the afternoon. In this way she generated the income necessary to cover her own expenses and contribute economically to the expenses of her home, where she lives with her parents.

Thanks to this she began to work at a very young age. She learned the job quickly and so managed to take advantage of the opportunity to buy the stationery store when her former boss offered to sell it to her. This was approximately two years ago, and since then Leidy has been the owner of her own business, thanks to which she can support her own expenses and contribute financially in her household.

With the desire to supply her business, because of the school season, Leidy wants a loan that will give her the possibility of buying paper products and having a good supply of merchandise to sell to her customers.

Leidy hopes to be able to supply her business without affecting her monthly income. In addition, she hopes that with a greater variety of products her customers will find more reasons to shop in her store, and in this way her income will continue to increase more all the time.

Leidy dreams about getting her business ahead and that, with this, she will have the possibility of gaining access to a university education and realizing her dream of being an educated professional.
