A loan of $500 helped buy products like rice, sugar, noodles, candy, and soft drinks to set up her mini market.


Julia Magaly's story

Julia Magaly Briceño M., 39, lives on San Lucas Street Nº 702, in the lower part of the Esperanza district, Trujillo province, La Libertad department. She has two daughters who are economically dependent upon her.

Julia started selling groceries fifteen days ago. She started her business of selling clothes two years ago; the business is in her house. With her first loan of 300 PEN, which she received from her Community Bank, Nueva Esperanza II, she bought polos, jackets, and pants.

With this loan for 1,500 PEN she will buy products like rice, sugar, noodles, sweets, and soft drinks to set up her store.

Julia wishes to make her dream of having a mini market come true in order to grow as an entrepreneur.
