Barbara's story

Bárbara is 32, a single mother, and lives in her own home with her parents and her three children. Barbara sells juices and soft drinks. She has a small location in a school in her neighborhood. Her main customers are the teachers in the school that always need her to quench their thirst. She has done this work for 2 years with the help of her oldest daughter.

Her daily earnings are very good, and this gives her the tranquility she needs to endure the expenses for raising her small children. Her biggest wish is to set up a juice store in an area in the city that is centrally located and crowded to be able to sell a greater variety of juices and at the same time, increase her earnings to benefit her family.

On this occasion, she is requesting 600 Nuevos Soles. She is very happy to know that she has economic backing to continue advancing toward her goals. She promises to be a punctual borrower with each one of her payments.

With the amount requested, she will purchase 2 sacks of oranges and 2 sacks of pineapples to be able to continue preparing juices.
