A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase handbags, belts, shoes, and men and women’s clothing.


Yanira Lissete's story

Yanira lives with her daughter in her own house. She works as a vendor and has a varieties shop where she sells clothing, sandals, and handbags. She started her business three years ago with support from her family.

Yanira needs to purchase merchandise so she can restock her business and purchase items that are most in demand from her customers, such as handbags, belts, shoes, and men and women’s clothing. She will be able to offer greater variety with these items.

Yanira’s dream is to keep her business stable and well-stocked so she can provide her customers with better service. Most of all, she wants to meet the household expenses and help her daughter with her studies.
