A loan of $375 helped to buy drinks to sell at her store.

Mercy's story

Mercy is 26 years old, married, and lives at her parents' house with her family. Mercy sells different brands and flavors of refreshing drinks for a living. She has a refrigerator from the drinks business she works for where she keeps the soft drinks and beer she sells throughout the day from her home. Her customers are mainly her neighbors, friends, and family. She likes her work a lot as she still has free time. She also wants to increase the number of products she offers as she is making good profits because her shop is in a very busy area. This time she is asking for 1,000 soles. She is very happy knowing she has financial support, as this makes her feel secure in moving forward with her business. She also promises once again to make her payments on time. She is happy with her group as she is a veteran member who offers all of her experience to the newcomers. She will buy a greater quantity of drinks with the requested amount to she can keep working.
