Vanessa's story

Vanessa is the mother of 4 young children whose ages range from 2 to 15 years. She provides pest control fumigations to soda stands, restaurants and grocery stores. In order to expand her business she needs a motorcycle

The work is booked through telephone calls, and she assigns and organizes it, working by routes and coordinating it with her employee. She establishes contacts and has a contact sheet with addresses of her customers.

Having economical transport such as a motorcycle would permit her to cover more territory in less time, which is why she is asking for a loan from the foundation.

Her goal is to expand the business to other areas of the country, in order to increase her earnings and to have better living conditions, get ahead and create jobs for other people.
