Jheny Alexandra's story

Jheny, 24, is a young entrepreneur who already has a business of her own: a fast-food stand that she started as an alternative to earn income an help her mother with household expenses. He mother who helps her with the business is also who taught it to her for she worked at this for many years. She works weekends from 2pm until 2am to take advantage of the location she has which is a very commercial zone that’s surrounded by discotheques.

Her effort, dedication and positive energy have led her to reach the goals she’s set and this is why she’s asking for a loan to buy another fast-food cart, a large tent, tables, chairs and supplies at wholesale (bread rolls, potatoes, cold-cuts, sauces, soft-drinks, etc.) to be able to improve her working conditions, expand production and offer quicker service to customers who will be able to enjoy what she makes comfortably. All of this will be reflected in increased sales and income generated that she’ll be able to use to continue supporting household economy.

Jheny dreams with being able to strengthen her business and in future be able to rent a space in which to do her work as well as to generate employment opportunities. She will also have the capacity to provide her family with better quality of life.
