Ofelia
Ofelia, 56, is married and has four children, with whom she lives in her own house.

Ofelia earns a living selling food products such as vegetables, bananas, eggs, bread, flour, rice, oil, sugar, and other things. She has a stall set up for this in front of her home where she provides friendly and cordial service to each one of the customers of her establishment. She works with the help of her daughter and has done this job for six years.

She considers her business profitable because it has allowed her to get out of financial predicaments as well as be able to help her husband with the household expenses. She likes her job because it allows her to be at home and take care of her family. On the other hand, she doesn't like it when sometimes she can't manage to sell all her products in due time, especially vegetables that rot in a few days, creating a loss in her investment. This doesn't discourage her, though, and she makes better calculations from her sales to buy what she needs and avoid spoilage. In addition, she plans to continue and make her business grow by looking for ways to increase her sales.

Currently she'll request 2500 soles [PEN]. She's grateful for the opportunity offered to get the loan she needs to continue achieving her goals.

With the requested amount she'll buy bananas, vegetables, and other products such as rice, eggs, oil, and sugar.

Además tiene planes de continuar y hacer crecer su negocio buscando incrementar sus ventas. En esta oportunidad solicitará S/. 2500, por tanto agradece la oportunidad que le brindan para acceder al crédito que necesita para continuar con el logro de sus metas.
