Monica's story

Monica is 36 years old, married, and has two children who are her greatest treasure and for whom she sacrificed many years, working with the goal of providing them with a suitable home. Her desire to progress gave her the idea of investing in a grocery store, which she has attended to for 14 years. In that time, she has established her business as one of the most sought-after and well-known in her area. Her business' success is due to having quality products at comfortable prices, always considering each household's finances. However, her greatest desire is to stock her grocery store with new products, like household products and school supplies, given that the demand is increasing and the requests for them are continuous. However, the little capital that she possesses limits her growth as a business person. This would be the seventh loan that she requests with Microfinanzas Prisma, with which she hopes to improve her business. In her communal bank she most likes the commitment and responsibility of her fellow members, with whom she has worked for more than seven years. Monica needs 1200 soles to invest in the purchase of quality merchandise for her store.
