Sulejka
Sulejka is 42 years old. She is a hardworking, enterprising, and dynamic woman. Her partner, Justo, is 48 years old and works as an employee. They have three children: Ivan, 15 years old, Ximena, 11 years old, and the youngest, Saori, who is one year old. She lives with her partner and children in her in-laws' house.

Sulejka makes a living selling fast food such as salchipapas (fried potatoes with hot dogs), broasted chicken, fried rice, and other foods. She sells these dishes in front of her house. She starts work in the early morning, when she goes to the market in search of the best ingredients. There, she takes advantage of the opportunity to do her daily shopping. Once she gets home, she starts to prepare her delicious dishes, which have made her very well-known in her neighborhood. She has been working in this business for more than two years, with the help of her sister.

She believes that her work is profitable because it generates a good income. Before starting this business, she worked for other people and had a difficult time because she did not earn a good income. She always suffered in order to pay her home expenses. Eventually, she decided that it was time to start her own business and become independent. Now that she has her own business, everything is going much better. She wishes to continue growing and become a prosperous entrepreneur.

With the requested loan amount of 1000 Peruvian soles, she will buy ingredients to make fast food, such as potatoes, boxes of oil, and others, in large quantities. She will then be able to continue with her business. She also needs to refurbish some chairs and tables in order to better serve her clients.
