A loan of $700 helped to buy clothes, cosmetics, and other personal care items to sell.

Yensi's story

Yensi is a young woman who was previously member of a communal bank, but decided to leave the group. She lives with her partner and their six-month-old baby. She lives in a rural community where salaried work sources are scarce. To contribute towards the household expenses, she sells clothes, cosmetics, and other items door-to-door in her neighborhood and nearby places.

She goes out to sell every day and picks up payments every Saturday. Lack of money due to months when customers take time to pay means that she cannot meet all the orders that her customers make. This is why she is requesting financial support in the form of a loan to overcome this obstacle. Her goal is to strengthen her business and increase her profits in order to improve her quality of life.
