A loan of $1,500 helped to invest in buying hardware.


Yessenia Del Carmen's story

Yessenia continues in her business selling hardware. She works together with her husband on a small stretch in a bus terminal which is very busy with people. Two of her children still live with her and so she continues working hard for the good of the family.

Yessenia has bought more products such as hosepipes and flashlights, which are what her customers request the most of, and other products thanks to the loans she has received from Afodenic. She will invest this new loan in buying flashlights, plugs, scissors, nails, adhesive, screwdrivers, electrical wire, lamps, hammers, wrenches, water pipes, sealant, trowels and other products so that she can maintain her sales because she has a lot of demand.
