Zulmy Veronica
Zulmy is a 28 year-old mother who lives in the El Pescador neighborhood, located in the San José district, 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo. She lives with her husband and her two children, one of whom is 6 years old and is studying in the neighborhood school, and the other is 3 years old.

She has a small business in her house, where she sells basic daily-use products (rice, sugar, cooking oil, etc.), and also chicken, vegetables, and sweets. She started this business one year ago and it has helped with the family income since her husband, like most men in the area, works occasionally in artisanal fishing and his income isn’t enough to support his family.

She is requesting her first loan of 2000 PEN which she plans to use to expand her business by purchasing products that her customers usually buy. The little that she earns isn’t enough to buy what she needs to grow her business.

Zulmy’s dream is to have a prosperous business so that she can provide her children a better future.
View original language description ↓
Zulmy es una madre de familia de 28 años de edad que reside en el sector El Pescador, ubicado en el distrito de San José a veinte munutos de la ciudad de Chiclayo, donde vive con su esposo y con sus dos hijos, uno de 6 años que se encuentra estudiando en el colegio de la zona y otro de 3 años de edad.

Tiene en su vivienda un pequeño negocio donde vende productos de consumo diario (arroz, azúcar, aceite, etc.) así como carne de pollo, verduras, pan y golosinas. Este negocio lo empezó hace un año y ha servido de apoyo a la economía de su hogar, ya que su esposo, como la mayoría de los hombres de la zona, se dedica eventualmente a la pesca artesanal y lo percibido por él no es suficiente para mantener a su familia.

Ella está solictando por primera vez un crédito de 2000 nuevos soles, el cual piensa utilizar en la ampliación de su negocio comprando productos que usualmente son solicitados por sus clientes, ya que el poco dinero que percibe en ganancias no le alcanza para comprar lo que ella necesita para hacer crecer su negocio.

El deseo de Zulmy es tener un negocio próspero para brindarle a sus pequeños hijos un mejor futuro.
