Soledad's story

Soledad is a member of the Señor Justo Juez village bank. She lives in the district of Huanchac, in the department of Cusco.

Soledad is 57 years old. She is married and has 3 children, 30, 27, and 21 years old. She has a grocery store but a few months ago decided to also sell shoes by catalog. She offers three catalogs and allows people to pay her in two payments. She collects the first half when she delivers the shoes and the second the following month. She sells handbags and all kinds of shoes and sneakers. In the future, she would like to set up her own shoe store. She is a very charismatic, optimistic person. She tells us that she pays for all her merchandise in advance, but that to encourage her clients to purchase from her, she allows them to make two payments instead of one. She would like to have this loan to pay for the orders she making from Lima.

Soledad is very grateful for the loan and is committed to paying off her debt in full and on time.
