Tania's story

Tania is 35 years old, separated from her husband, and lives in her own house with her three children. Tania makes a living selling food products like rice, sugar, bread, milk, eggs, oil, and condiments, among others. She has a small store located in her home where she tends to her customers from very early in the day, offering them good quality products and paying them much attention. She thinks her business of five years is stable due to the good financial profits that she gets. She likes her job because it gives her free time to do other activities. She says that it is going very well because her sales now occur more quickly than before. She hopes that her business will continue to grow along with her finances.

At this moment she asks for 1,500 PEN. She is very happy with the financial support that has been offered to her so that she can continue to move forward with her business. She promises to complete the payments of all the fees on time. With the requested amount, she will buy more products to sell in her shop, including sodas, sausages, rice, and sugar.
