Anita's story

Anita, 27, is a hard-working, determined woman who is also cheerful and cordial. She is single, has no children, and lives with her parents who she tries to help as much as possible to get ahead. Anita is a medical consultant and rents a space where she receives patients with diverse minor ailments so she can find a solution to help them.

She studied nursing and puts into practice on a daily basis everything she learned about sutures, cures, injections and other things. She has been in business for a year and, up until now, it has been going well. She also sells soft drinks and rents out a motor-taxi on a daily basis. She enjoys her work because it allows her to put into practice everything she studied. She also feels satisfied knowing that her patients go home happy that their problems have been resolved. She hopes to increase her consulting activity through the eventual purchase of equipment necessary to detect more complex illnesses.

On this occasion, she is requesting 3,500 PEN and is counting on your help to continue toward her goals. The loan will be used to buy needles, syringes, alcohol, gauze, medicines widely used and surgical gloves so she can continue working.l
