Raquel's story

Raquel is a single young woman who is 24 years of age. She lives at the house of one of her sisters who convinced her to start her own business. Raquel was able to obtain a stand at the market in her town where she sells groceries and various food products. She started working only five months ago and says that she has done very well with her sales despite the competition. Raquel sells meat, vegetables, cold drinks, and milk. Her goal is to save her earnings so that she can buy a plot of land and build her own house. For this reason, she works very hard at her job.

Raquel will use this loan of 2500 PEN to restock with merchandise so that she can increase the inventory at her stand.
