A loan of $450 helped to buy silver and gold jewelry.

Guiselle Johana's story

Guiselle, 31, is the mother of a little nine month old son. She’s a merchant; she sells silver jewelry her father makes. She’s worked since she was very young noting her father’s occupation which is being a jeweler. One day she decided to start her own business and that’s when she talked to her father so that he’d help her making inexpensive jewelry that she could more easily sell. This is how she started looking for customers going house to house knocking on doors looking for people who would like to wear her items. She’s been in business three years and it helps her meet household expenses.

Now she’d like to sell gold too which is why she needs the loan to buy silver and goal jewelry. She intends to go sell beyond the city and needs a variety of product to sell. One of her future plans is to make some home improvements to gradually provide a proper home for her son.
