Laxmi
Laxmi is 20 years old, married and mother of 2 children, and the whole family lives her own house. For the past 2 years she has dedicated her professional career to the sale of fuel like petroleum, gasoline, and kerosene. Her business is known for selling unadulterated fuel, and for this she earns about 280 Soles per day in profits. For supplies, Laxmi travels every three days to the location where the tap is located that provides said fuel at the lowest price, and in this way she is able to sell it at a modest price. Because of this all of her clients prefer doing business with her. Laxmi is very content with her business, and even more because her husband primes the cylinders for the fuel in an appropriate location so that she does not have to bear so much weight and so that she does not contaminate her children. In the past her loans were under her husband's name, but she attended all of the meetings of the community bank and because of this decided to change the ownership of the loan and Laxmi feels very much a part of the group. Futhermore, she is the treasurer and she is in charge of the monthly collections. The money that she is requesting she will invest in the purchase of cylinders and more fuel.

Laxmi es una madre de 20 años de edad, está casada y tiene 2 hijos, todos viven en su casa propia. Hace 2 años se dedica a la venta de combustible; tales como petróleo, gasolina y kerosén. Su negocio es reconocido por vender combustible sin ser adulterado, por ello reúne diariamente hasta 280 soles de ganancia. Para abastecerse Laxmi viaja cada tres días a la localidad donde se ubica el grifo que le provee dicho combustible a menor precio y de ese modo ella puede venderlo a un precio módico, por lo que todos sus clientes la prefieren. Laxmi se siente muy contenta con su negocio, aun más porque su esposo acondicionó los cilindros de combustible en un lugar apropiado para que ella no cargue mucho peso, así como para evitar la contaminación de sus hijos.
Anteriormente sus préstamos eran a nombre de su esposo, pero ella asistía a todas las reuniones del banco comunal, en vista de ello decidieron cambiar la titularidad de crédito, pues Laxmi se siente muy compenetrada con el grupo. Además es la tesorera y se encarga mensualmente de realizar las cobranzas. El dinero que viene solicitando lo invertirá en la compra de cilindros y más combustible.
