A loan of $1,500 helped to have money for the sales of wooden toys.

Jhoselin's story

Jhoselin is a single woman with one child who she supports morally and economically. She has only the support of her mother, since the father of her child abandoned her about two years ago. She supports herself through the sale of wooden toys, which her own mother makes. It is difficult for her to support herself with only the help of her mother, and therefore she is asking for a loan to expand her business and to be able to buy greater quantities of toys.

Thus, she will improve her quality of life and offer her child a better social status. And also she wants to buy herself a small house, which is a dream of hers for the future, which she hopes to achieve shortly. Even though her mother treats her quite well, she would like to have her own home, since her son needs a place where he can sleep more quietly and where he will be able to study in the future.
