Nieves's story

Nieves is forty-seven and is a brave single mother. She lives with two of her four children, Jarol and Yulissa. She cares for them in her own home. Her smile is a sign of her vitality. A little while ago, she started a business buying and selling maca, thanks to a farmer that offered her the necessary means to start this business. She is thankful for this because it let her support her children and to give them food every day. The profits that she makes aren't stable. This is why she decided to start sewing without stopping her maca business. She makes garments of every size and quality. She says that she earns an average of 150 PEN a week, but during Christmas, the new year, and the agricultural festival of Santiago is when she makes the most profits. This is why she now wants to improve her quality of life by making some fixes to her house. Her children are professionals and need their own space. This is her fifth credit with Microfinanzas Prisma. She hopes for your collaboration so she can carry out her plans. She promises to make all of her payments on time. She is grateful for being a part of her communal bank because all of the members are responsible and supportive. Nieves will invest the requested money in the purchase of maca for her business as well as fabrics of various colors to do her sewing.
