Nelly's story

62-year-old Nelly is a widow. She lives in her own home together with her eldest son, daughter-in-law and grandson. Nelly's business is selling spare parts for motorcycles and motorcycle taxis. She has a specially-adapted space for this business within her own home. Her store is one of the busiest in town. Nelly has been in this line of work for approximately 25 years and started her business together with her late husband. She currently has the help of her son and daughter-in-law in serving her customers. She also has the help of a member of staff who she pays weekly to carry out heavy work such as loading crates, serving customers, etc. What Nelly likes about her work is that it makes her income with which she is able to support her household.

On this occasion, Nelly is requesting a loan for 2,500 soles. She feels very happy and grateful for the support that she is receiving and pledges to make her loan repayments on time. She will invest the sum she has requested in buying spare parts wholesale for motorcycles and motorcycle taxis. She will buy items such as tires, headlamps and driving helmets.
