Federico's story

Federico, 37 years old, is married and has a 14 year old son. He lives with his sister, his nephew and his family in his mother's house. Federico sells edible products such as sausages, milk, rice, sugar, bread, eggs, oil, and condiments among others. He opened a small store in his mother's house where he attends to the needs of his neighbors who are his main customers as he treats them well.

He started this business twenty years ago, but he also works as a mototaxi driver. However, he considers his business to be very profitable as it generates a lot of revenue. He enjoys his business since it allows him to be in contact with a lot of people. His main wish is to continue working and to increase the variety and volume of products that he offers. He is requesting a loan of 1,000 Soles and is very grateful for the financial support that he is receiving to continue with his business. With the requested amount, he will purchase food products such as rice, oil, sodas and snacks.
