Deisy A., 19, is single and lives with her parents. She is currently a student in one of the most prestigious universities in the city.

From a very young age, Deisy A. assisted her mother with the family business, which consisted of running a telephone booth. In doing so, Deisy gained the trust of her parents. Thanks to her consistent attention to detail and her persistence, her mother decided to hand over her position in this small company to Deisy in 2005. At the moment, her shop is already quite well-known and approved by the community.

Deisy will use the loan proceeds for the purchase of phone cards for recharging the balances of mobile phones and for equipment.

Deisy maintains that if we do not change our mentality, we cannot get ahead, as that is the first step.
