A loan of $200 helped to buy telephone cards.

Pinina Armandina's story

Pinene has sold groceries for more than ten years in her small shop called "TANIA." She started out harvesting cochineal and prickly pear for a third person who exported the seeds and then earned the plantation owner's confidence, who lent her 400 soles to open her small business.

Through the years she has managed to sustain her home with her husband's help, who is a mason. She has also managed to provide her children an eduction and to buy some appliances. She will invest the capital received in the purchase of rechargeable cards for mobile phones that are in demand in the area where she has her small store, Pinina is happy to raise capital for an investment that will provide short-term gains.
