A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase a television for video games.


Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is 35 years old, single, and has two children who are 4 and 14 years old. They are her main motivation for inspiration and daily strength since she works to give them everything they need. She lives with them in her mother's house together with her father and sister.

Elizabeth works renting video games. She installed a small store in her home along with all the permits and legal licenses that allow her to do that work. She started a year ago by purchasing a television and only five games, which were the most popular at that time. With time, she has grown the business and now has two televisions that each have a device installed that allows the game to be played. The thing she likes about her work is the fluid customer flow, who she attends to with a lot of kindness. On the other hand, she does not like the disorder that happens sometimes when the store is full. She hopes to continue working and generating income since she plans to start another type of business.

Currently she is requesting 3000 soles. She is very happy to have financial support since she will feel secure moving forward with her business. She promises again to make her repayments on time.

She will use the loan to purchase a television that she will use to continue working. She will also purchase new video games that are being requested in this season.
