Doris's story

Doris is forty-two years old, is married, and has two children, who are the best gift that life has given her. She lives in a beautiful home that she built together with her husband. Her economic activity consists of the sale of basic food items. In order to do this, she opened a store in her home, which is where she sells items like rice, sugar, bread, milk, eggs, condiments, vegetables, drinks, and other items. She began this business four years ago and she works alone. She complements her economic income in every way possible by making clothing items. She likes her work because it allows her to be active throughout the whole day; her daily schedule begins very early and ends at night.

Her goal is to grow her small store and to increase the quantity of products that she offers. In this opportunity, she will request 3500 soles. She is very happy to know that she will have financial support and will thereby feel assured in advancing her business. She also promises once again to comply with her payments in a punctual manner.

The amount she is requesting will be invested completely in the purchase of food products, like rice, sugar, sausages, condiments, vegetables, and other items.
