Aida's story

She is dedicated to the sale of beds, sheets and other articles for the home. Recently she reached the year and a half mark working with loans from Manuela Ramos. The loans were invested in the purchase of articles for her business. She buys the beds unfinished and then applies a finish to sell them at an improved price. With this new loan of 2500 soles she will buy 15 shelves, 10 bunkbeds, 5 cupboards, 6 corner pieces, a can of shellac, 1 can of primer, and a kilogram of padding. Her husband works as a chauffeur (trucker), and she has to work and to attend to her children at the same time to be able to help her husband economically, who, no matter how hard he works, does not earn enough money for the expenses of the house.
