A loan of $400 helped to pay off the balance of her front end loader.


Virginia's story

Virginia is 50 years old, and is a hard-working woman. She is the mother of two children and wants the best for them. She lives in a house made of wood.
Always looking for the best for her family, she stopped working in agriculture to try her luck selling building aggregates (the sand and stone used in concrete). Thanks to the money she had previously saved, she managed to buy a small front end loader, which is operated by a driver to extract fine sand and cement from the riverbanks where she lives.
She has been working for three years in this industry and comments that, at the beginning, it was not easy because she did not have many customers. Nevertheless, her punctuality and commitment resulted in her becoming well-known in her local area and consequently she strengthened her business to be able to support her family financially.
To pay off the balance of her work tools more quickly, she would like to have financial support.
Her future plans include the purchase of van to facilitate the transportation of the aggregates. At this time, she is requesting a loan of 1000 nuevo soles to complete the payment of her front end loader.
