Cherli's story

Cherli, 38, is a very active woman; she is married and has three children who she lives with in her parents' house. Cherli sells staple goods, offering all kinds of vegetables, tubers, rice, sugar, bread and eggs, among others. She gets the merchandise wholesale at the city's main market and through her establishment is responsible for distributing it to the people of the town. She has been in business for a year and is doing very well; she has a good customer base which helps her have good sales and earn a significant income. She gets help from her eldest daughter and her mother who tend the store when she is busy or is not at home. She loves her job and can dedicate the necessary time to adequately supply her customers. What she doesn't like is when people fall behind on their payments, but she has learned to be very patient and in the end always collects their debts in full. In addition, the experience has taught her to recognize all types of customers. In the future, she would like to open a store selling jewelry and improve her income. At this time, she is requesting 2000 soles. She is grateful for the opportunity and the confidence placed in her to receive this loan, and she is committed to paying her dues on time. With this loan, she will buy a larger quantity of groceries like rice, sugar, bread, oil, milk and others.
