Consuelo
View original language description ↓

Consuelo is 62 years old and lives in the district of Lamas, in San Martin. She has 6 children - 2 sons and 4 daughters, all of whom are grown up now and help support their mother financially. Before joining the communal bank "Cuidad de los Tres Pisos", Consuelo worked as a seamstress, but this business was not very profitable and she decided to sell grocery items. However, things didn't work out as she'd hoped and instead she began her business selling dried, salted fish. She realized this business was profitable, but she didn't have the money she needed to begin. With the first loan she received, she was able to stock her business and begin selling from the municipal market of Lamas. With the new loan, which she will repay in 6 months, she will purchase different types of dried, salted fish, which she purchases wholesale. Her dream is to one day open a general store in her own house.




La señora Consuelo tiene 62 años de edad, actualmente vive en el distrito de Lamas, provincia de Lamas, departamento de San Martín. Tiene seis hijos, dos varones y cuatro mujeres, todos ellos son mayores de edad, los cuales la apoyan económicamente.
La señora Consuelo antes de pertenecer al Banco Comunal “Ciudad de los Tres Pisos” se dedicaba a la costura, pero esta actividad ya no era muy rentable y decidió dedicarse a la venta de abarrotes, sin embargo, no le fue como esperaba, entonces se inició en la venta de pescado seco salado, vio que este negocio era muy rentable, pero no contaba con el capital necesario para incrementar su stock, es así que con el primer préstamo recibido en su Banco Comunal pudo incrementar su negocio ubicado en el mercado municipal de Lamas.
Con el préstamo de S/. 2,000.00, el cual pagará en 6 meses, comprará pescado seco salado como paiche, tilapia, maparate, bocachico, arahuana, lisa, etc., los cuales comprará al por mayor en sacos. Sueña con abrir una tienda de abarrotes en su propia casa.
