Perlitas 21 Group's story

Sra. Cristina is 36 years old, single, and has one child. She has a food business that she started four years ago. On a typical day, she wakes up very early to begin her housework and to attend to her child. Her work involves preparing food and then selling it.

Cristina knows the other group members because they attended the same school and are also neighbors in the area. With this first loan she is requesting, she will buy furniture, such as tables and chairs, and supplies to increase her business so that she can serve more customers. Regarding the loan, her goals and aspirations are to expand her business so that she can generate more income. In her personal life, she hopes the increased income will enable her to build a house of her own and provide a better future for her child.
