Digna's story

Digna is a hardworking, diligent, and sociable woman of 61 years. She is divorced and has independent children, so she lives in her own home in the company of her brother. Digna's work is to rent out rooms for single people. She has 10 convenient and comfortable rooms that are occupied by permanent tenants. She has done this work for 21 years and has the support of her brother who is in charge of promoting the renting service. She likes her business because it is a way to earn an income that she needs, without requiring too much physical effort. In addition, her work makes her feel like an entrepreneurial and productive woman. Her plan for the future is to increase the amount of rooms that she currently has since she has plenty of land that is rented out for this business.

In this opportunity, she is requesting 1,500 Nuevos Soles. She is thankful for the financial help that she receives because it helps her move ahead in life. In addition, she is committed to making her loan payments punctually. The amount requested will be to invest in materials such as wood, paint, nails, and wooden planks to construct two new rooms to rent.
