Yeny Paola's story

Paola is 21 years old and the mother of a three-year-old baby. She and her partner are in a common-law relationship. After she finished high school, she decided to become a marketing and customer service professional, but she encountered few job opportunities because of the lack of experience. Paola decided to start her own business by opening an Internet café. This enables her to put her knowledge into practice while allowing her to keep an eye on her baby. Generating income will enable her to sustain her household financially.

Paola is an active, energetic, and enterprising young woman who is determined to complete her goals. For this reason, she is excited about requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of computers and chairs. She will also repurpose her space so that she can implement her business idea.

By generating sufficient income, Paola will be able to address some of her basic household needs. She will also accomplish her dream of having a source of income that is reliable and sustainable over time. As a result, she can have a better quality of life that she can enjoy along with her family.
