Sandra's story

Sandra, 42 years old, is a dynamic and enthusiastic woman who lives with her husband and two children ages 20 and 16, respectively. Sandra's family lives in a house they own and out of it she runs her juice business in order to offer her family a better quality of life. Sandra makes a living preparing juices from the region's best fruits. Her most popular drink is chicha mirada, made from purple corn. Sandra has been working in this business for two years, and in that time has perfected the recipe that her customers prefer. Eventually, Sandra hopes to expand her business by offering sodas too. Sandra works alone and loves to see her customers enjoying her drinks.

She is requesting a loan of 1,200 Peruvian soles in order to buy fruit, purple corn, sugar, and small bags that she needs in order to maintain her business. She also plans to invest in various flavors of sodas.
