Yoshimar Jeanneth's story

Yoshimar is a young woman who is 26 years of age. She is the mother of a three-year-old daughter. The father of her daughter helps with some of the child’s expenses, but she is in charge of raising her. Yoshimar sells cosmetics through catalogs to her relatives, friends, as well as to stores and offices. She lives at the house of her parents, who help care for her daughter when she is out making sales or collecting payments. Her sales generate income by which she and her daughter can live in an almost financially stable situation.

The father of her daughter does not live with her, but she already has another partner. He gives her a monthly amount that somewhat helps to compensate for the absence of the child’s father. However, this amount does not cover all of her daughter’s expenses. For this reason, Yoshimar wants to increase her sales by setting up shop in the garage of her parents’ house. She will install a counter where she can display her cosmetics on a daily basis.

The loan will be used to buy a display counter so that she can generate more income and create more stability for her business. As a result, Yoshimar can improve the quality of life for herself and her daughter.
