A loan of $1,375 helped to buy meat to improve the products of her business.

Julia's story

Julia, 21 years old, is single and doesn't have children. She lives in her parents' house with her 3 siblings. Julia works by selling beef. For this business, she has a stand in the main market of her town, where she cheerfully attends to her customers. She started the business 3 years ago with her own capital since she saw the need to earn her own source of income. At first, she had help from her parents but slowly became independent. She likes her business because it allows her to interact with people. Also, the income she earns lets her contribute to household expenses along with her parents, and pay for school. On the other hand, she doesn't like that some customers ask to purchase on credit, which she doesn't allow because she has had bad experiences with those type of sales. She has plans to implement her business and keep growing and earning more income.

At this time, she is requesting 3,800 soles and she is very happy to have the financial help provided to her, which allows her to move forward in her job. This is why she promises to make payments punctually. With this loan, she will buy a variety of meat cuts and beef to improve the quality of products she offers.
