Yessenia Del Carmen's story

Yessenia is a very hardworking woman who is seeking to get ahead with her husband in their small business, a hardware store they have had for years. They are raising two children who are in school. The oldest is 20 and is on his own and they have given him a good education. Every morning Yessenia goes with her husband from their home to the market where they have their business to do the day's sales. The loan she is asking for is to invest again in her business, which is the only source of income to pay for the family's expenses, which are inevitable. In the future, she hopes to outfit her section better, so it can be more attractive to the customers.
