A loan of $875 helped to buy items for her business.


Jessica Maria's story

Jessica is married, and her children go to school. She is an industrial chemist, and has her own business renting canopies, chairs, tables and decorations for event celebrations, allowing her to have time to care for her children. She started doing this with her life partner's encouragement, as they noticed that in the area where they lived there was no similar rental business. Perceiving an opportunity for the business, she started to buy merchandise with her own funds. A difficulty has arisen, which is important for her to resolve. The demand is very great so she needs to invest in the purchase of pitchers, trays, tables, chairs, canopies, as well as tablecloths. She has goals and plans both for the business and for her family's well-being. She considers it important to support her husband with the household expenses as they are still paying for their house. She is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the family of borrowers in the microfinance institution, which will work a great change in her life, in the form of the market opportunity she will have.
