A loan of $1,275 helped to buy beverages.

Miselida's story

Misélida, 61, is divorced and has four children. She lives only with Diana, 38, in her own house.

Misélida makes a living selling beverages in a variety of brands and flavors. She has done this job for five years. Sometimes she also buys and sells grains such as corn, beans, and other products. In the future she hopes to have a well-stocked bar where she can sell peacefully all day, because currently she works only in the afternoon.

Although she already has a lot of experience in this work, she feels it's still difficult for her to tend to all her customers. Even so, she hopes all her efforts will produce good results as up to now, because the only thing she wants is to get ahead.

With the requested amount of 3500 soles [PEN] she'll buy more beverages to have in her business to satisfy her customers, who request various brands and flavors.
