A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase wood and sheet metal for a roof, for the necessary improvement of her home.


Nohemy Yamileth's story

Nohemy, 35, is married and has three children. She performs her domestic activities and has an Grade 2 academic level. For the last seven years she has also provided her services in a tuna business, packing seafood. Nohemy acquired her experience from a friend, who recommended to her that this business would help her to have a better income. Nohemy will use the money from the loan to buy wood and sheet metal for a roof, for the necessary improvement of her home, since the current conditions are not favorable for the family's well-being. Nohemy strives for her children to obtain a good education and to maintain her family in good conditions with opportunities for progress and development.
