A loan of $375 helped to buy sodas.

Nellina's story

Nellina is 59 years old. She is married and has 4 grown daughters. She lives comfortably in the home she owns with her husband and one of her daughters. Nellina's activity is selling different brands and flavors of sodas. She pays for the products she offers her customers up front and sells them from her house to neighbors and others who are her regular customers. She has been doing this for more than 10 years and so far has the help of just one daughter on occasion, who tends to the customers when she isn't home. She considers this business to be profitable because of how quickly she runs out of the products. She likes to do her job because she can manage her free time to do household tasks. She is also happy with the income that she gets daily with which she can help her husband pay for the household expenses. At this time, she is asking for S/. 1000. She is very happy to know she will have financial support, since this way she feels she can advance her business. On the other hand, she is committed to making her payments on time. The amount she has asked for is to buy different brands of sodas to stock her locale.
