A loan of $375 helped to buy groceries to sell at her shop.

Julia's story

Julia is 43 years old. She is a single mother and lives in her mother's house with her two sons. She sells groceries such as rice, sugar, and flour. Her shop is located at her house. Her older son helps her tend to the customers in his spare time. The number of customers grows by the day. Julia has had this store for one year now. She likes it as a business because it is an easy way to bring in the money she needs for household expenses. Julia wants to expand her business by properly managing her profits and by patiently dedicating a lot of work to this endeavour. She asks for 1,000 peruvian soles and is very grateful for this chance at financial support, which will enable her to keep on with her work. She promises to always be on time for her repayments. With the funds, she will buy more of the most sought-after items, which are rice, sugar, cooking oil, eggs, milk, and bread.
