Geni's story

Geni, age 30, is a happy, dynamic and enterprising woman. She is married to Pedro, 30, and has three children aged 13, 12 and 8. She has her own home, where she lives with her family.

Geni sells clothes, shoes and catalogue products. She has a store in her mother's house, which she shares with her sister who has another business. She has been working in this trade for 6 years and works alone as she prefers it. She likes her work as she has availability for lots of other activities as well as having this direct contact with her customers. Geni orders fashion articles and accessories as well as high quality clothing in order to keep her customers happy, it motivates her to hopefully one day open a well stocked boutique.

For her part, she is committed to make her payments according to schedule once again. With the requested sum of 1200 PEN she will buy more stock like clothing, shoes and home decorations as well as other new things.
