Herenia's story

Herenia is married and is fifty-nine years old. She is a very hardworking woman who has always liked the trade business. She started out as a tradeswoman selling clothing, perfume, and shoes that she bought wholesale and then distributed to different customers. Her husband always helps her in these activities.

Two years ago, she had to leave her position selling clothing and other items because her husband suffered a stroke, and it became difficult to travel to the area where she bought her merchandise. Therefore, she decided to make a living selling eggs, custards, and cheese, since there is a farm located very close to her house where she can buy these products.

Her husband's condition has improved, and with her new customers, her business is going very well. Each month, they sell approximately 2000 cartons of eggs, 200 bags of custard, and sufficient kilograms of cheese in order to be able to cover home expenses and personal needs.

Under these circumstances, Herenia never gave up and she wishes to continue in her business. For this reason, she is requesting the support of Fundación Mujer in order to buy sufficient cartons of eggs that she can distribute in the upcoming months.

She has been an excellent client of the foundation, and is sure that she can continue making her payments on time.
