Alejandrina's story

Alejandrina is 28 years old. She lives with her partner. They do not have children yet. She is dedicated to supporting her husband in his restaurant, but dedicates a lot more time to a cell telephone calling service that she sells on foot. She has been selling this service for 3 years, in which time she has acquired all the necessary knowledge to perform very well in her work, earning herself a good profit. Alejandrina likes her work, since it gives her a certain liberty as she does it, moving from one place to another offering the calling service. The most difficult thing is to have to bear the heat that occurs during the day and the prevailing cold that occurs in the afternoons in this zone of the country. Alejandrina is requesting her first loan with Microfinanzas PRISM. With the requested money she wants to buy another cell phone to improve her income.
