Mary
Mary, 21, is a young woman who has a strong desire to succeed. She has formed a small family with Listion and her little, Nayeli, who is 3 years old. Together they have a lot of dreams for the future. They live in their parent's home, which is a rental. Having financial support from Listion, she decided to also participate in supporting the household finances as quickly as she could while also taking care of her child. To do this, she started up a small grocery store. Now, two years later, she is proud to be participating in the financial growth of her young family.

She comments that she chose a grocery store business because she felt that farming would be very difficult for her, and because she wanted to provide as much attention as possible to her little one. Thanks to a store that she rented with the support of her parents she is always in her business and is making a lot of friends. This has made her very well-known in the neighborhood.

Seeing that this is a good season for all of the merchants in the area, she doesn't want to miss out. Therefore, she plans to purchase staple consumer products and groceries, such as various brands of panettones (sweet holiday bread), so that she can generate good sales at the end of the year. She will also stock up with merchandise purchased at wholesale so that she can generate additional earnings.

Mary's financial goals over the long run are to buy a plot of land and later build a home on it. With the 3,000 Peruvian soles she requests she hopes to stock up her business for the end-of-year sales, including groceries purchased as wholesale such as rice, sugar, preserves, and panettones.

Mary de 21 años es una joven con muchos deseos de superación, tiene el agrado de formar una pequeña familia junto a Listion y su pequeña Nayeli de 3 añitos, juntos con muchos sueños a futuro residen en la vivienda de sus padres en calidad de alquiler. Al tener el apoyo económico de Listion decidió tan pronto como pudo ser también partícipe del sustento de su economía familiar y cumplir su rol de madre para con su pequeña iniciando así una pequeña tienda de abarrotes aquel entonces, hoy con 2 años después tiene el orgullo de ser participe del crecimiento económico de su joven familia.
Comenta que optó por el negocio de abarrotes ya que sentía que el campo era una actividad muy complicada para ella y porque deseaba darle toda la atención posible a su pequeña. Gracias a un local que alquila con apoyo de sus padres esta siempre presente en su negocio ganando a su vez muchas amistades que la convierten en una vecina muy conocida en su barrio.
Al hallarse en una buena temporada para todos los comercios de la zona no quiere ser la excepción, es por ello que planea realizar la compra de víveres de primera necesidad así como de panetones de diversas marcas con el fin de realizar una buena campaña por fin de año y a la vez proyectar el abastecimiento de su mercadería con compras al por mayor, generando así ganancias adicionales.
Sus objetivos económicos a largo plazo apuntan a realizar la compra de un lote y la posterior construcción de una vivienda. Con los 3,000 nuevos soles que solicita, espera abastecer su negocio para la campaña de fin de año con víveres al por mayor consistente en arroz, azúcar, conservas y panetones.
