Edinson's story

Edinson, 36, is single and still does not have any children. Everything he earns is dedicated to his parents with whom he lives together with his sister up until now. He dedicates much of his life to offer the best to his family, and thereby improving their quality of life.

Edinson makes a living selling foodstuffs, and other home staples products such as rice, sugar, eggs, milk, detergents, grains, balanced meals, and other things. He does this work in a sales stall located in one of the main city markets. He has two years experience in this field. At first it was complicated to begin for him since he did not have any experience with this business. But, with time, he learned and now he has the necessary guidelines to have his customers happy.

What he likes about his job is the continuity of the sales and the fluidity that comes with his customers making diverse purchases. In addition, when he has free time, he does other recreational functions, his business is going well for him, he has many customers, and this generates a good income.

He hopes to continue working and grow his business. With this opportunity, he will be requesting 1000 soles. He thanks all of the people that give him the opportunity to access the financing he requires to be able to continue working. On the hand, he promises to complete the payments on time. With the amount requested, he will buy more products for his store like rice, oil, milk, and other things.
