Deissi Alejandrina's story

Sra. Deissi Alejandrina R. G. is 40 years old and lives in the District of Salpo, Otuzco Province, Department of La Libertad – Perú. She is a member of the Communal Bank “Virgen de las Mercedes”.
Deissi studied nursing and was engaged in that profession for 3 years before leaving to raise her daughters and start her own business.

She and her live-in partner have two daughters (ages 17 and 15). She works in order to provide them with an education. Deissi sells sodas and beer out of her home. Her previous loan of 300 soles was used to purchase cases of beer wholesale. This current loan of 3000 soles will be used to purchase more beverages (sodas and beer) at wholesale.

Deissi dreams of opening a restaurant but she is not able to at the moment because of her job as a registrar for the City of Salpo. One day she hopes to have a restaurant so that she can increase her income and support her children’s education in whatever career they choose.
