Juana Alejandrina's story

Juana, 67, is married and lives in her own house in the Tinguiña district. Her spouse works as a construction site supervisor in another city; he sends her 150 soles per week to cover household expenses. They have two adult children who have their own families but they help out their parents economically. She does not have children to support. She owns her own concrete house with its equity. Juana's greatest wish is that her children become professionals and have a better quality of life. Her main and most profitable activity is selling womens' clothing. She started this line of work over 20 years ago. Her first point of sales location was a sales stand on Amazonas Street. The city evicted her from that location and relocated her to Lambayaque street where she currently operates. She requests financing to buy merchandise to stock up on womens' clothing for the Holiday shopping season.
