Domitila's story

Domitila is 48 years old, married, and has three children, ages 31, 27, and 25 who are obviously on their own now. She only lives with her youngest son, who is studying and finishing his education. She has a home of her own and gives the best for her family. Domitila sells regional fruit during the day. She goes out to her veranda and shows her delicious fruit to buyers from the main regional market. She also sells local food in the evenings and different foods during the day. She has been doing this on her own for ten years. What she likes about this is that she has enough space to have two household incomes; also cooking has always been her passion since she was very young. She is grateful that things are going well for her and that her customers are steady because of her great seasoning. On this occasion she is requesting a loan of 3,000 PEN in order to buy local fruit to sell. She will also buy ingredients to prepare the foods she sells. She is happy about this opportunity which will allow her to continue growing financially and she is committed to making her payments on time.
