Sadith's story

Sadith, 30, is a very humble and hardworking woman. She lives in her own house with her husband Wilfredo, 34, and her four beloved children, ages 13, 12, 7, and 5, whom she wants to give a better quality of life.

Sadith's job is selling a variety of products, whether cleaning products, dairy products, or household products, among others. She stocks up on these products depending on the season and sells them on foot to her friends, relatives, and occasional customers. The quality of everything she sells is evident in the well-known brands that her customers prefer.

Her sales are generally on credit; she sells in cash only occasionally. She began selling a little and only to some customers, but in time she began expanding her list of customers, who now buy from her in large quantities. She has done this work for two years.

She likes her job because she feels her work is giving the results she wanted. She thinks it's going very well for her because she has good sales, she generates good income, and she also progresses more every day. She hopes in time to have a store where she can sell her products without having to go out to sell in the streets.

With the requested amount of 1000 soles [PEN], she'll buy more detergent, soap, and bleach to sell this season.
