A loan of $800 helped to buy lubricants and spare parts for stocking her business.


Zenaida's story

Zenaida is 44, and has the pleasure of sharing her life with her partner Juan, who is 39. Complementing the warmth of their family, she has the pride of raising their two children, Mardenku, 19, and Carlos, 14.

They live in a home made of wood, which they acquired a little while ago. For 14 years she has been running her business selling spare parts for various vehicles. Everything started when Juan, after working as a helper in a private workshop, obtained enough experience in this area to allow him to open his own workshop. Noting the increase in clientele, she chose to open her business selling spare parts, and they have succeeded in growing stronger as a very productive couple.

She is very happy with her business as it allows her to spend all the necessary time with her family. The increase in sales has enabled her business to become a solid support for the household.

As with every business, it is necessary to invest in merchandise that allows the business to be restocked and attract customers. This is why, motivated by her business needs, she wishes to restock her store.

In the future, she wishes to begin building her house from high-quality materials and improve her business premises. She needs to have 2,000 nuevos soles to buy lubricants and spare parts for stocking her store.
