A loan of $550 helped to buy more footwear merchandise for her store.


Susan's story

Susan is 26 years old and married, and she lives in a rented home with her husband and daughter. Susan works selling second-hand footwear, like shoes and trainers for women, men and children. She works out of a rented storefront in a central area of the city. Her business gets a lot of visitors given that she sells well-priced and modern styles of shoes. She started this business nine years ago and has been running it alone up until now. She considers her business fairly profitable given the good earnings that she makes. She feels very happy with the work she is doing because she feels useful and satisfied, and it is going very well since she has a lot of customers. She hopes to have a bigger store where she can sell more comfortably. On this occasion, she is asking for 1,500 soles [PEN]. She is grateful and happy to know that she can continue to count on the financial support she needs to continue progressing with her business. With the amount she is asking for, she will buy more merchandise, consisting of used women's and men's shoes.
