A loan of $350 helped to purchase fabrics and articles for decorating.


Sandra's story

Sandra is a hard-working, very lively woman of 39. She is divorced and the mother of a teenager. She works decorating places for birthday parties and all types of celebrations. Her sister works with her, and she has been a member of the community bank “Siete estrellas” (Seven Stars) for the past three years. The first loan that she received allowed her to invest in soft drinks, and carbonated beverages.

With this loan of 1000 new soles ($350 US), she will purchase fabrics and other articles that she will use for decorating. Her goal is to have a well-stocked business location so that she can offer her decorating services and also bring gift items to sell from Lima.
