A loan of $1,050 helped to buy drinks and stationary.


Yessenia Margarita's story

Yessenia started selling drinks from the front part of her house to improve her income.  She chose this type of business because there was no place that sells drinks in the area where she lives.

She has slowly been improving her income and carries out her work alone from 7:00am to 6:00pm selling drinks, sweets, stationary etc. 

Yessenia is a single mother and has two children of 17 and 8 years old who are studying at primary and high school. She has many dreams for her business and for this reason she wants to use the loan to but drinks and stationary. One of her goals is to grow her business.
