Cindy's story

Cindy, 21, is single and has no children. She lives in her parents' house with her siblings and shares their desire to get ahead. In the evening, Cindy sells regional dishes such as tacacho, rice and chicken, beef skewers, grilled chicken, and sausages. She also cooks and sells stews and soups in the afternoons from Monday to Friday. She offers very friendly customer service and great food, which has created a warm reception and demand for her business. She opened the business a year ago with her mother's help. She likes the business because she loves to cook and likes earning money from her sales, which has helped her pay bills and contribute to household expenses. On the other hand, she doesn't like getting up early in the morning to prepare for the day's work. This doesn't discourage her, and she keeps working enthusiastically until the day ends. Cindy is asking for a loan of S/. 600 soles. She is grateful for the funding that will let her develop her business. She will use the money to buy supplies like meat, plantains, oil, condiments, and rice.
