Santos Doris
View original language description ↓
Santos Doris A. G. is 30 years old. She studied up to her first
year in secondary school. In present day she is single and doesn’t have
any children. She lives in the district of Florencia de Mora, in the
providence of Trujillo, and in the department of La Libertad, Perú.


She sells gelatin and flan every morning in the market of La Hermelinda.
She’s been selling gelatin and flan for 18 years. In a large container she
carries the cups of gelatin and goes around the market selling it. She
was shy at first, but quickly adapted. Now not only does she sell things
in cups, but in also in bags which sell at a more affordable price.


She is a member of the communal bank, “ Dios Guia Nuestros Pasos” where
she obtained her first loan of 300 Soles. With that loan she bought
ingredients necessarily for making flan and gelatin. With an upcoming loan
of 800 Soles, which she pay back in 4 months, she hopes to buy a case of a
thousand spoons, cups and two large sacks of gelatin, flan and sugar.


Ultimately she hopes to increase her business and sell flan and gelatin
all over the city.

La señora Santos Doris A. G. tiene 30 años de edad, estudio hasta el primer año de secundaria. Actualmente es soltera y no tiene hijos. Vive en el distrito de Florencia de Mora en la provincia de Trujillo departamento La Libertad – Perú.


Ella vende gelatina y flan todas las mañanas por el mercado La Hermelinda. En una fuente
lleva los vasos de gelatina, recorre por todo este mercado en busca de clientes. Desde la edad de 18 años se dedica a este negocio empezó con 50 vasos de gelatina, al principio tenia un poco de vergüenza. Poco a poco se fue adaptando al negocio, posteriormente elaboraba en mayor cantidad. Ahora no solo reparte en vasos sino también en bolsas y a un precio más cómodo.


Pertenece al Banco Comunal “Dios Guía Nuestros Pasos” lugar donde obtuvo su primer préstamo de S/. 300.00 con el que compro todos los ingredientes necesarios para la elaboración de gelatina y flan.


Con el préstamo de S/. 800.00 el cual pagara en cuatro meses comprara un millar de cucharas, un millar de vasos, dos sacos de gelatina y flan, y azúcar.


Su mayor sueño es ampliar su negocio, contratar personas con el fin de repartir la gelatina por otros mercados, y si es posible por toda la ciudad.
