A loan of $400 helped to buy various products to stock his shop.


Judi's story

Judit, aged 39, is a hard-working man; he lives in his own house with his partner Martha who is 36, and their 2 beloved children, to whom they want to give a good future. Judit works hard to get ahead in his work. He is a shopkeeper and has a grocery store in his community; the shop is regularly used by his customers because he and his partner serve them with a great deal of warmth. The doors of his business open very early and are ready to receive the first customers, who don't hesitate to shop there as they know that there is a variety of products so they are sure that they will find what they need. The thing that he likes most about his work is chatting to his customers, as this is one of the skills that he employs to attract a greater number of customers. He has been working in this business for 10 years and feels very happy to improve each day. With the loan which he obtained, he will buy more supplies for his business so that he has a good stock of merchandise. In time, he is thinking about increasing his earnings by expanding his shop. This is his seventh loan and he is very happy to know that he will have the financial support to be able to continue his work. With the 1,000 nuevos soles, he will be able to buy more supplies for his business.
