Jenifer Andrea's story

Jenifer is 22 years old, and lives in a common-law marriage. Currently she is unemployed due to her lack of work experience, and it has been difficult for her to find employment opportunities. This brings her to start her own business, with the goal of generating the necessary income to support her home.

She wants to start a store that sells shoes and clothing for women, merchandise that comes from China, which will generate better turnover of stock and good profitability. She obtained the knowledge that she has in business from her parents, who have worked the larger part of their lives independently, and have a store that sells used clothing on one of the principal plazas in the city.

She is requesting the loan with the goal of investing it in the purchase of merchandise in bulk (shoes, tennis shoes, blouses, women's jeans), with which she hopes will give a start to her project and in that way start to generate the sufficient resources to support her husband with the economics of the home, and additional that she will have the possibility of generating employment for other people.

In this way, Jenifer wishes to fight to achieve her dream of expanding her business, opening more branches in different parts of the city, and in the future, to be able to travel to different countries of the world that stand out for textile production like China, Los Angeles, and New York; but she is conscious that to achieve it she should work hard and put forth effort with much determination and dedication.
