Lindis's story

38-year-old Lindis is a hard-working, determined woman who has a great desire to get ahead in life. She is married to Misael who sells goods for a living and is the father of her four children. Lindis lives with her husband and children in the comfort of her own home. Her business is selling well-known brands of shoes and sneakers. She sells all kinds of men's and women's footwear in different sizes and designs, at affordable prices. She has been in this business for one year and confirms that it is doing very well. Lindis works alone and makes her sales according to the orders that she receives from her customers. These orders are either placed in advance or she receives them by routinely visiting her friends. Lindis requests payment in cash although she generally leaves her goods on credit and collects payment on dates that she agrees in advance with her customers. She feels happy in her work as her hard work pays off in the good profits that she is able to make. She needs a larger loan because she would like to increase her quantity of goods. The summer season is approaching and her main goal is to increase her quantity of merchandise so that she can sell a wider range of goods to her customers. On this occasion, Lindis is requesting a loan for 1,000 soles. She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving as it will help her to realize her business plans. She will use the sum she has requested to buy a certain quantity of branded shoes and sneakers so that she can continue making sales.
