Yaniris's story

With a loan of 21,000 Yaniris has been able to buy rice, oil, beans, sugar and canned food for her grocery store. Yaniris started this business three years ago looking to help her husband support their home. He is a messenger in the community's funeral home. They have five children who are 26, 25, 24, 19 and 4 years old. The oldest four work, and the littlest one started preschool this year. Yaniris’ big dream is to build her house out of concrete blocks, since the one she currently has is made of wood and very unsafe.
