A loan of $700 helped to buy staple grains (rice, beans, oil, sugar, canned food).

Julia Yamileth's story

Julia is 38 years old. She is married and has two children, who are at secondary school. She tells us that since she was a little girl she has liked working because she is the daughter of a hard-working and determined mother, and this helped her a lot because it enabled her to start her own business selling staple grains at the market in Chichigalpa. She has been doing this for 13 years now and she already had experience in the business when she started. With the goal of bettering herself and obtaining more income to improve her children’s quality of life, she decided to start another business selling food (lunches). She has set this business up in the same location as her grain-selling business. She thinks that she has had success with her businesses up to this date, since she has regular customers. She thinks she is a happy, enterprising, and determined person with a desire for self-improvement.
