Banco Mujer Yireth Group's story

Jacqueline is the treasurer of the Mujer Yireth bank, a group that is asking for its second loan from Fundación Mujer. Responsibility and dedication characterize this group formed of 5 members who will invest in their businesses.

Jacqueline is 29 years old, has 2 small children, and is a single mother since the father of her children went away and left them when the second child was born. She currently lives with her parents and her mother helps her with the care of the children so that she can leave to sell. This very determined woman works selling products from a catalog; she sells in her community and others nearby. She sells all sorts of products such as cosmetics, perfumes, clothing, lingerie, and household products. This new investment of working capital will be to purchase more merchandise to take care of the orders that have increased along with her customer base. She works very hard to improve the living conditions, and to be able to have a house for herself and her two children.

In this group: Maribel , Jacqueline, Silvia, Deyanira, Iliana
