Lisi's story

Lisi is 28 years old, she is married, and she has two children who are ages five and nine. They all live together in their own home. Lisi's work consists of selling shoes, sandals, slippers, purses, and other products. She works a street vendor in a market near her home. She also has a stand where her partner works while she goes out to offer merchandise to their friends, neighbors, and the clients they have been able to gather during the years they have been running their business for more than seven years. Fortunately it is going very well. She feels very happy doing her work because her efforts are repaid by the good income she makes, but she needs additional help now that she wants to expand her products in anticipation of the holiday shopping season that is coming. Her primary goal is that her business prosper in infrastructure as much as in the quality of her merchandise so that she can offer a greater variety of items to her customers. In this cycle she is requesting S/. 1500. She is very happy to know that she will have a source of financial support and to feel confident going ahead with her business. At the same time she promises to fulfill her payment obligations in a timely manner. With the amount she has requested she will purchase shoes and sandals.
