Banco Mujer Yireth Group's story

Heilyn, barely 20 years old, has a 4-year-old son, is a single mother, and lives with her parents. To pay for the costs her son requires, she began selling as a street vendor. She sells perfumes, makeup and all sorts of cosmetics; she considers herself a good saleswoman with excellent customer service. With the income that her work generates, she takes care of her son's expenses, helps her mother, and pays for her education. It is very important for her to finish her secondary education, since she has many aspirations for the future. Heylin asks for a second loan, and it is to purchase lotions and creams since she has many orders already. The loan is a very important tool because it permits her to have more merchandise ready for her customers and, in turn, increase her sales. Heilyn is convinced that working with care she will achieve what she sets out to do, and will be able to give a better quality of life to her son.

Along with Heilyn are 3 other members of the group who will invest in businesses.

In this group: Ana, Cindy, Heilyn, Rosa
