Victor's story

Víctor is 41 years old and married to Nila, who is a merchant. They do not have children. He lives with his wife and mother-in-law in his in-law's home.

Víctor works selling cold soft drinks. He constantly receives the representative from the distribution company at his home, who is in charge of taking his order. The next day they send him the requested quantity and he places the bottles in his refrigerator and waits for his customers to come to his home in search of a refreshing beverage to quench their thirst. He has only done this work for two years and also works for a private company. He is very happy with his work because he is in constant contact with his friends, neighbors, and other future customers.

His business produces good profits, but he feels it is still not enough to cover the main household expenses, so he wants to establish a beverage distribution company to offer sodas and beers at wholesale prices. He is requesting 1,000 soles. He feels grateful to all the people who are providing this loan that he needs so that he can meet his objectives. He promises to make his repayments on time. He will invest this loan in the purchase of a variety of brands of soda and beer to stock his business.
