Vanessa Lizeth
Vanessa is 22 years old and lives with her husband and two year old son in the village of La Zaranda in the district of Pitipo, which is located 45 minutes away from the city of Chiclayo.


Her husband currently works as a laborer, but his income is not enough to support their entire family. She started selling food a year ago at the local high school.


Every day, Vanessa wakes up early to prepare the food she sells – traditional sweets and other snack items. During recess, she sets up her vending post in the schoolyard patio. Students wait with great expectation for her to arrive and start selling her products.


She wants to finish the construction of her house. One time, she bought a computer for the students to help them with their research. Vanessa knows that she has to keep working at her business in order to achieve her goals. For this reason, she is requesting her first loan from our Institution in the amount of 700 soles so that she can buy candy to sell to the students.


Vanessa is well known in the community and is considered to be a responsible woman. Therefore, the local school authorities have entrusted her with selling food to the students.

Vanessa tiene 22 años de edad y vive junto a su esposo y su hijo de dos años de edad en el caserío La Zaranda, distrito de Pítipo, ubicado a 45 minutos de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Su esposo trabaja eventualmente como obrero y, debido a que los ingresos que percibe no son suficientes para mantener a toda la familia ella empezó hace un año a vender comida en el colegio de la zona.

Todos los días se levanta temprano para preparar los platos que vende: algunos son dulces típicos, otros platos de comida y al momento del receso se sitúa en una área del patio de la escuela y vende sus productos a los escolares los que esperan con mucha expectativa su llegada.

Ella desea terminar de construir su casa y a la vez comprarse una computadora para realizar trabajos de investigación y ayudar a los estudiantes, sabe que debe seguir trabajando en su negocio para lograr sus metas, por lo que ha solicitado por primera vez a nuestra Institución un crédito de 700 nuevos soles que piensa invertir en la compra de golosinas para vender a los estudiantes de la zona.

Vanessa es muy conocida en su comunidad y es considerada una mujer responsable, por este motivo las autoridades del colegio de la zona le han confiado la venta de alimentos para los alumnos de dicha institución.
