Angela
Ángela, age 33, is divorced and lives in her own home with her three children. She sells local drinks, all made from the freshest and tastiest fruits that she can buy in the market. Her store is located on a busy corner. She started off selling from the door of her home, and then later started selling all over the city, carrying buckets full of drinks in a little wheelbarrow. Now, though, she has a storefront thanks to an agreement with the local municipality.
She has had this business for ten years. She has always worked alone, and even though it is going very well for her now, she recognizes that she had many difficulties in the beginning. She is very happy because the profits from this business allow her to make a lot of changes and to improve her quality of life and her home.
She really enjoys what she does. She enjoys talking to her customers and getting to know their preferences and which flavours they like. In the future, she wants to have a store or a soda fountain where she can offer a greater variety of drinks and ice creams made from regional fruit. She would like to not be limited to traditional drinks.
She is requesting 2500 soles. She is grateful to everyone who is making her loan possible; she needs it to achieve her work goals. She will invest this loan in the purchase of the fruits and other ingredients that she needs to keep selling her drinks. She will also purchase a small freezer to keep her products cold all the time.
