Cenit's story

Cenit is 52 years old, married, and lives with her husband, her two older children, and helps to care for one of her grandchildren in the home she owns.

Cenit works selling drinks such as soda, beer, mineral water, and energy drinks. Her business is located in her home and she opens every day to all the people who come to quench their thirst. She shares her store with a small restaurant, which allows her to sell more beverages and have customers all the time, especially on weekends. Both activities generate income and are equally developed. She has been doing this work for more than 5 years and she works with the help of her husband. Her work generates substantial profits each week, which covers their basic needs. Another part is saved for some fortuitous situation, which made her decide to continue improving her business. She wants to implement her food business and hopes that her financial situation is favorable for the good of her family.

She is requesting 2,000 soles. She is grateful to all the people who make her loan possible so that she can firm up her plans. She promises to make her repayments punctually. She will use the money requested to purchase soda, beer, and mineral water to increase the variety and quality of the products she offers to her customers. She will also purchase all the necessary ingredients to continue with her food sales business such as chicken, rice, eggs, oil, and other products.
