Alicia Janeth's story

Alicia Janeth P. B. is 32 and lives in the district of Victor Larco, Trujillo in the department of La Libertad, Peru. The entrepreneur studied up to 5th grade and has two children that financially depend on her.

Janeth sells fish and takes care of kids in the wawawasi (a child care center). With her first loan of 300 nuevos soles she bought beauty products like lipstick, lotion, powders and perfumes that she sold to her friends and family. This loan of 800 will be invested in buying seafood. Janeth dreams of having a location in the Buenos Aires market to sell with less stress and without having to walk around in the streets of Buenos Aires.
