Yunita is a stove entrepreneur whose community appreciates her products so much that she can't keep up with demand. She currently employs three people, but she'd like to hire more. "I would be happy if I would access more capital so that I'm able to employ more artisans or more labor to make a lot more stoves."
Why she was selected for the program: Yunita's stove enterprise displays strong promise for growth. If her business receives the support she needs, she says, "I'll feel confident to be more. You know, be more creative and inventive. It will also make me more confident as a person and be able to deal with my personal challenges with more confidence."
Her Business Goal: Yunita hopes to increase her sales to $1,945 per month. This will help her provide for her kids and grandkids as well as hire members of her community to meet the demand for her stoves. "I'm feeling very happy, very motivated, and ready to see what the support will do."
