Petronila's story

Petronila, 64, is married and lives with her husband and oldest daughter in her own house in the Tambogrande district. The community she lives in wants to improve itself and they already have basic electric services.

Petronila's job is tailoring and selling men's and women's clothing. She's known in the area and has regular customers and wide experience in her business. She has sole responsibility for the business because her husband works selling clothes, and is also a master tailor. They have worked tailoring, sewing, and selling clothing for more than 25 years. Together they get their household ahead with their work.

Petronila has requested a loan for 2000 nuevos soles [PEN] to buy supplies for tailoring and sewing clothing and to buy a lot of women's and men's clothing.

Petronila always shows a great desire to improve herself and grow in her business.
