Edith
Edith, age 29, is a single mother. She faces the world with courage and strength for the well-being of her only child, age 10. She lives in her mother’s house together with her sister and her minor child.

Edith’s work is selling basic needs products for retail prices. Among the items she sells are rice, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, cooking oil, vegetables, and more. She has this business in her house, and she tends to it full-time every day. She has been working in this trade for 11 years.

In the beginning she had help from her mother, but now she is alone in the business. Sometimes she gets help from her sister when she has to accomplish other tasks outside of the home. What she likes about her work is that she has time to complete other everyday activities.

Fortunately, it is going very well for her because she always has customers. This is due to the variety of products that she offers and because it is the only grocery store in her area. She hopes to be able to continue emerging and to make her business grow.

She will now request 2,800 soles. She is very grateful for the loan opportunity given to her and for the financial backing she needs to get ahead. She will use the requested loan to buy merchandise to sell in her store. She will buy candy, rice, sugar, bread, eggs, milk, cooking oil, soft drinks, sausages, vegetables, and others.
