Liseth Yasmin’s story
Liseth is 27 years old and studied up to the ninth grade because, at a young age, her parents put her to work in agriculture. She is a single mother of two children, of whom only one goes to school.
Liseth has a small store in her house and has been at this business for three years. Since she was very young, she worked both in agriculture and in sales, which are her principal sources of income. She works 12 hours daily and it is in this way that she earns her living.
As a single mother, she needs a loan to purchase shampoos, soaps, seasonings, candies, soups, eggs, powdered milk, sugar, coffee, bread, etc., to stock her store.
With the 3 previous loans, she has been able to invest in her work and has been very responsible paying them off. She dreams of seeing her children become good people and for this she will be in charge of teaching them good values.
