Antonia is a forty-year-old mother of two children. Antonia has a small store in her house, located in a neighborhood of the Nazareno District. She sells vegetables, meat, firewood, fruit, stove gas, etc., which she acquires from a market near the city of Ayacucho in the very early morning. Antonia opens her store from six in the morning until eight at night. In addition, Antonia travels to regional fairs of Quinua and Ccejelambras on the weekends, where she sells fruit and purchases cereal to resell in the markets of Ayacucho.
Antonia needs a loan of 1,200 Peruvian Nuevos Soles to invest in rice, sugar, cooking oil, milk, and noodles.
Antonia’s dream is to have her own tavern, to expand her business, and to provide a good education for her children.
