Sayda's story

Sayda is a 33 year old young woman, an idealist and very friendly, who is the partner of Fidel, and she has a young daughter who is 2 years old. She lives in her own home at the side of her daughter and her partner with whom she works hard in order to improve their quality of life.

Sayda’s work consists of selling shoes, sandals, slippers, and clothing. She works selling to friends, neighbors and family. She began about two years ago and it is going well. She works easily without neglecting her young daughter. This season she is offering party shoes and children’s dresses as the holiday season is approaching.

She is happy doing her work as it repays her in good income, but she needs some additional help as she wants to get ready for the coming holiday season. She is doing well as she sells a lot but she lacks capital to invest, so that is why she is asking for 2500 soles in order to buy more merchandise. Among the things that she will buy will be sandals, slippers, shoes, dresses, polos, pants and some other products that her distinguished clientele request.
