Johana Patricia's story

Ms. Johana Patricia G. is 36 years old and single. She has two daughters, one of whom is 17 years old and has one year of general studies, while her other daughter is 12 years old and has six years of primary education. The purpose of this credit is to meet the demand that already exists since she depends on the profits of her business to support her home economically. Her dream is to acquire her own home because she currently lives in the home of her mother and would like her children to gain a better life. Getting a good education is an important part of her children's progress and for society and the country. Ms. Johana's economic activity is the roaming sale of cosmetics and clothes. She has worked in this business for nine years. Ms. Johana started this business because of the necessity of having an income stream to care for her family and to meet the responsibility of giving her children basic necessities. She decided to offer clothes and cosmetics because her clients are office workers at local businesses. She started with just a few products such as shirts, pants and perfumes and in this manner was able to obtain work. She now needs working capital to purchase products from different departments in the country, since she doesn't want to lose clients if she cannot offer them the products they request and her main goal is to obtain a greater variety of merchandise to offer them.
