Yessenia Del Carmen's story

The young Yessania del Carmen works in one of the markets in the city of León. She leaves her house at 5am and starts distributing products to other sellers at 5:45. She finishes at 4pm and buys her stock from suppliers who visit her at her stall. She is mother to a 3 year old boy and does this type of work to help her husband with household costs. She started her business by selling plastic bags in small quantities on a mobile basis. Now she has been selling disposable products in a permanent stall for the last 5 years. She will use the loan that she is requesting from Ceprodel to buy plastic bags, straws, plates, cups and disposable spoons which has attracted more clients. It has also increased her sales and profits which have improved her business. Her dream is to manage to have her own home as she lives with her family.
