One member is Señora Yeny. She is 28 years old, lives with her partner, and has two children. She works in her restaurant business. She prepares breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. In the past she had a business selling beauty products, but it did not go very well for her. She has been in the restaurant business for two years now. In her free time she likes to go for walks with her children. Her dream is to expand her restaurant business. She is applying for the loan to buy ingredients for cooking, such as chicken, meat, and vegetables.

The other members' businesses are a grocery store, selling handicrafts, selling corn, and selling animals.

Señora Yeny is grateful to those who form part of her dream through this means, and she promises to make her payments according to the established schedule.
