Doli's story

Doli, age 52, is married and has six children. She has provided them with an education and good manners. She now lives with only one of her daughters and three grandchildren in her own home. Doli sells clothing, sandals, high-heeled shoes, and other common accessories. All her merchandise is sent in from another city in large packages by one of her daughters. When Doli receives her orders, she selects the articles that she will later put up for sale. She goes out every day through the streets of the city looking for customers. She brings all her merchandise along to offer door-to-door. She sells for cash or on credit, and charges daily, weekly, or every five weeks. When she is unable to sell everything in the city, she travels to other population centres near the riverbank; she is able to sell everything there and will return home, approximately ten days after having left, very happy. Doli started this business two years ago. She works alone and is very satisfied with her work. She enjoys her work because it allows her to take advantage of her time and use it for other activities very comfortably. She has learned how to win the respect and confidence of her clients because of her good service and big smile. She has good sales, and thus makes a good income. Now she hopes to continue to expand her business and buy a stall in the future to continue with her work. She is requesting 3000 soles and is very happy to know that she will have financial support that will allow her to continue moving forward with her business. She promises to repay her quotas punctually. She will invest this loan in the wholesale purchase of merchandise: clothing for men, women, and children.
