A loan of $375 helped to buy more vegetables for her business.


Sabina's story

Sabina is from the city of Quimbiri. She is 51 years old. She is a widow who struggles for the well being of her 2 dear children for whom she provides a roof where they quietly spend their days. Over the years she continues to fight for the best welfare of her children and herself.

Sabina is a business woman and eager to continue working. She works in the vegetable business where she offers a variety of produce such as lettuce, garlic, celery, and carrots. Her selling post is located in the Quimbiri market where she has worked for 25 years. Previously she would sell her products door to door.

Since the Municipality in the Quimbiri district finished construction of the market, Sabina and many other merchants nowadays offer their goods in compliance with the regulation of municipal ordinances.

The sale of vegetables generates good earnings thanks to them asphalting the land. However, the expense of her children's education is very large and the reason why she has turned to the loans so that she can buy vegetables for her business. Her future plan is to buy another post where she can sell staple products and thus rely on two incomes.

This will be her 6th loan and she is pleased to have the financing to help her continue progressing. This time she hopes to get the support of you guys to continue advancing and therefore she agrees to pay her dues on time. With the 1,000 soles she will buy a variety of vegetables.
