Annie's story

Annie, 40, is a brave, hardworking woman. She’s the mother of two children who are 18 and 9 years of age; they are the fruit of her marriage. She owns her house where she daily enjoys the pleasure of raising her children and working hard to give them the best. In addition to them, another young man who helps them with the work they do also lives there. The business Annie has is related to the health sector. She has a medical office in a rented space where she receives patients who come by with various minor complaints seeking remedies for their discomforts. She studied nursing and every day she puts into practice what she learned from suturing, to first aid treatments, to applying injections, etc. She’s been in this activity for five years and to date is doing very well. She works with the help of another nurse. She likes her business because it allows her to apply everything she learned in her studies and she also gets much satisfaction when her patients return home happy to have had their discomforts taken care of. On this occasion she will ask for 3,800 soles and she’s grateful and happy to know that she’ll continue having financial support needed to advance in her business to rely on . She will use the requested amount to buy needles, syringes, alcohol, gauze, surgical gloves and the medicine she uses most so that she can continue doing her work.
