Esther's story

Esther is a member of the communal bank Despertar. She is 29 years and lives with her partner and two children.

She sells clothing for women, men, and children. She will invest the loan that she is applying for in the purchase of clothing to stock her merchandise, which she buys in the city of Lima.

In the past, Esther worked in a shop and there she learned the business. She got her capital together and began to work independently. Now she has a stall in the 12th of April market, and it is going well. With her savings she has expanded her business. Now she is saving for the construction of her home. Her dream is that her business continues to prosper and that she can give a good education to her children and open a store.
