Rebeca's story

Rebeca, 23, is married and the mother of a one-year-old son. She owns land on which she is building a house; however, at the moment, she is renting a room close to where she works. Rebeca's business is mainly offering care to patients with some pain or who require immediate or routine care. She is a professional and is studying nursing, as she thinks that people's lives and health are the most important aspects of being human. She works from a rented space with another nurse, who has taught her what she needs to do her job well. Thanks to her, Rebeca is able to attend to any person who needs help by providing the required treatment or by referring them to a medical specialist. Rebeca has been working in this capacity for more than a year. She is pleased that her work allows her time for her family when necessary. She expects to keep working as she has until now and slowly buy more equipment for her care center. She has applied for a loan of S/. 800 and is very happy to know that funding might be available to make her more confident in growing her business. She promises to make her payments on time. She will use the funding to buy health care items such as alcohol, cotton, syringes, and medicine for minor aches and pains.
