Yamid Elena's story

Yamid, 41 years old, is the mother of two children, ages 16 and four years. For them to move forward, she has had to make great sacrifices, but she assures us that for her children, she would give her life, if necessary.

She has worked in a variety of stores in her town, where she learned the trade and earned the experience that motivated her to start her business. For some years, she has sold clothes and accessories out of her home. With the goal of continuing to develop her business and increasing her revenues, she is requesting a loan that she will invest in the purchase of merchandise (clothes, shoes, accessories).

For the medium term, she dreams of opening her own store with a variety of merchandise and providing her son better access to higher education.
