Joan, age 41, is married and has two children, age 17 and 20. They are his reason for working and why he wishes to succeed. He lives with his wife and children in his own house.

Joan makes artisanal perfume. In order to do so he needs to have certain ingredients like roots, leaves, and flowers from different plants in the region, which he considers “mística” [mystics]. He also needs some fragrance essences from other elements like cherry or cinnamon.

He makes these perfumes only by pre-order from his customers. He also makes relaxants for the bath with the leaves from medicinal plans. His services are very well rewarded. He is requested in some cities where he travels during all times of the year.

He presents his perfumes in one liter, sealed bottles, which he sells in very eye-catching boxes. He has been in this business for over 20 years. He likes his work because his parents and grandparents also did it.

He will use the requested 400 soles to buy roots, flowers, and leaves from different plants to make the perfumes that he sells. He will also buy bottles and boxes for the presentation of his products.

He is very happy with the support being given to him in order to improve his business. He pledges to make his payments in a punctual manner.
