Janeth Tamara
Janeth is 26 years old and only completed up to middle school. She is a single mother after her husband left her with a six-year-old daughter.

Janeth gets up at 4.30am with her daughter, who depends on Janeth's work. Janeth makes a living selling clothes, a trade that she learned from her mother. Janeth sells her clothes where she lives and in the surrounding towns and cantons.

Janeth is applying for this loan in order to buy more clothes and to stock up her business as what Janeth had already invested was not enough. Janeth's earnings will be enough to support her family.

In the future Janeth plans to buy a plot of land and build a house. She is currently renting but this is a big expense.
