Yessica Villamizar is a hardworking entrepreneur, wife, and mother who lives in Cucuta, Colombia, with her family. Her husband and son are her support team, and they motivate her every day to work as hard as she does. Yessica is a publicist, and she designs advertisements for various shops in the city. Her income supports her family. However, she realized that she needed a better computer and updated equipment to improve the quality of her services and offer a better range of products to her customers. All she needed was a small financial boost to take her business to the next level, but Yessica didn’t have access to the investment capital she needed. Everything began to change for Yessica when one of her friends encouraged her to join Opportunity International. After she completed financial literacy training, Yessica received her first loan, which she used to purchase a new computer and an amplifier. Now, Yessica can design and print large announcements for important companies, and she’s attracted new clients. Yessica’s entered into business contracts with the city’s big shopping malls, but she continues to dream even bigger. Looking forward, Yessica hopes to continue expanding her business so that she can provide her family with the best life possible.
