A loan of $1,500 helped to buy costume jewelry, electrical home appliances, clothing, etc.

Daysi Janeth's story

The Esfuerzo y Poder cooperative bank meets every fifteen days in the canton of Olmedo, a place known for its beautiful landscapes and hard-working people dedicated to farming and raising livestock.

This is where Daysi, 52, lives as a single mother with one daughter who is 16 and in school. She is a founding member of the cooperative bank, the president of the group, and likes it because her associates are very united and trustworthy.

She has a store in the center of town where she sells a little bit of everything. In her locale, customers can find electric home appliances, plates, pillows, costume jewelry, clothing, and diapers, among other products. She works there every day from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, and her daughter helps her occasionally when she has free time. She has had her locale for more than 15 years and, thanks to this business, has been able to help herself and her daughter get ahead.

This loan is to supply her store, given that she will buy costume jewelry, electrical appliances and clothing, among other products that she’s missing and needs in order to provide better service to her customers.

Her dream is to see her daughter become a great professional.
