Yenni Guisela's story

Yenni Guisela H. lives in San Ramón in the district of Cuscatlán, and has lived with her husband for three years. He works outside the home as a labourer, and the family lives in a rented house. With two small children they have too many expenses to be able to own their own home. Their five year old son is in kindergarten, while their younger son is only three months old.

Yenni has set up a beauty salon at home, where she works every day. To increase her income she has diversified into selling other items including watches, wallets and perfume. With the dream of being able to offer her sons a better future, Yenni and her husband are seeking a loan to invest in the business, buying products that will help them to make more sales. It is important for them to establish a solid economic base that offers support for raising and educating their sons in the future.
