Yulieth Margarita's story

Yulieth, 24, is a very hard-working and enterprising young woman who has moved her own business forward. Her business is a sewing shop, where she offers tailoring services to others. She also has her own line of sportswear. She is the head of her household and a single mother to her 4-year-old son. Despite the great economic difficulties that this brings, her efforts with long work days have allowed her to move forward and give her son a good quality of life. Thanks to the high quality of her products, Yulieth now has a great opportunity that she does not want to let pass her by. Since she has difficulties with capital in her business, she is resorting to a loan to buy supplies like fabric, thread, closures, buttons, and others to start her own line of women's jeans. Her dream is to be able to offer her son a much better quality of life than what she can give him now and also give him access to a higher-quality education. She aspires to prosper in her business and hope that this will allow her to have her own home.
