Llerme's story

Llerme is 55 years old. She is a woman who is very committed to the development of her family with whom she lives in her small house. Her desire is to improve their living conditions. Her business is selling groceries, which she performs in a space that she created in her house for her store five years ago. Here, she works hard alongside her spouse who lends her a hand in the most tedious moments. However, despite the stress of some days, Llerme always has a big smile when she receives her customers who are very happy for the attention she provides. What she likes the most about her work are the conversations that she has with her neighbors, who see her as a friend. Nevertheless, what is most difficult is to have to deal with the crime in her area since the theives are always waiting in ambush. For the future, Llerme hopes to increase her income and expand her shop in order to offer new products, in addition to make her store more secure to avoid robberies.

This is her first individual loan with Microfinanzas PRISMA where she also formed part of a community bank and is recognized as one of the members who is happiest and most punctual with payments. The two thousand requested soles will be invested in the purchase of new products with which to stock her store.
