Crhis's story

Crhis, 31 years old, is a good, kind, and hard-working woman. She has a 5-year-old little boy, Miguel, with her partner of 5 years, Miguel, who is 36 years old. She lives in a rented house where she dedicates time to her activities and her son, for whom she wants to provide a good education and a better quality of life.

Crhis's work consists of selling soft drinks and candy. Every day, she keeps her products in her refrigerator and puts the products she has to offer on display. She stocks up on drinks twice a week. She has been working in this job for 3 years and since she started it, she has done everything herself. Also, every weekend she sells typical regional food and other Peruvian dishes since her experience and good seasoning allow her to prepare the vegetable stew that is requested.

Her business is moving along well. She hopes to continue working more and progressing to improve her home's economic situation. She is requesting 2000 soles, which will be used to buy boxes of soda and candy. Her weekly investment varies between 500 and 700 soles in one purchase. The remaining money will be used to buy ingredients used to prepare her meals.
