Giovanna
Giovanna, 37 years old, is a friendly and very hardworking woman who lives with her partner, Elvis, with whom she has three children, who are 17, 15 and the youngest, who is only six months old. She and Elvis work very hard to provide a better quality of life for their children. They live in their own house where they share the happiness of educating and caring for their children.

Giovanna’s work consists of selling drinks. She owns a soda fountain where she sells frozen drinks at reasonable prices to her customers. She sells all kinds of carbonated drinks, water, soft drinks and occasionally, beer. Her establishment is located in her house in a very busy area. She has had this business more than four years. Sometimes her children help her, but usually she works alone. At times she sells regional food on weekends. When she started her business she had few products to sell, however now she offers a large variety of brands and sizes of drinks and she is doing very well.

Giovanna has many plans for the future and wants later on to expand her business. Consequently she is requesting S/.1,500 to purchase drinks for her business. In addition, she will refurbish some parts of her sales space to provide her customers with greater comfort.
