Retina
Retiña is 28 years old and a friendly woman with dreams for the future. She lives in her own house with her partner Miguel, who works driving tractors and heavy equipment. They have two children, ages 11 and 2. They intend to give them a good education.

Retiña's work is selling basic household necessities, such as rice, sugar, flour and eggs. She does this work in a shop located in her own home, but also sells her products in communities around the city.

She has been in this business for six years, but when she was 18 she helped her mother run her store, and from there she had the idea of having her own livelihood. Her partner helps her make the purchases for stocking her store and helps serve customers. She says that her work is profitable because she has many customers.

In addition, as she buys at wholesale, she gets good earnings. She says that before beginning this business, she didn't have her own shop, and had to move from place to place. Then she decided to rent an establishment on a very busy street.

In the future she wants to build a well-ordered and comfortable shop, so that she can give better service to her customers and increase her earnings. Therefore, she is applying for 3000 soles which she will use to buy merchandise, which she will do in the capital through her friend who lives there.
