Florencia's story

Florencia is thirty-eight years old and finds unconditional comfort and company in her partner, Arquímedes, who is forty-five years old. Her motivation for the sacrifices she makes is her young Valery, who is four years old; Florencia dedicates her day-to-day efforts to her.

Before, she made a living entirely in domestic labor, but with the help of Arquímedes, she opened up a small grocery store. Today, five years later, she has been able to consolidate her grocery store and turn it into a good livelihood for her family. Day to day while her partner works as a public employee, she works independently in her store where she offers diverse basic need products, little by little making herself into a very well-known neighbor. To continue with her business, she needs capital for the purchase of food wholesale; there is constant variation in prices for these products because she is in a somewhat remote area.

Her intentions for her future point to her starting a small shop of small home appliances.

In this opportunity, she requires 2,500 soles to buy basic need food items wholesale like rice, sugar, and canned preserves, hoping to generate additional revenue.
