A loan of $200 helped to purchase grocery products such as rice, sugar, milk, and other items.

Danicsa's story

Danisca is 20 years old, single, doesn’t have any children, and still lives in her parents’ home. Danicsa sells grocery products such as rice, sugar, milk, toilet paper, oil, and other items. Her store is set up at the front of her house, and it is the only one in her area, so her sales are assured and her profits are stable. She has been working in this activity more than two years. She began selling products in small quantities, and now sells much more and it is going well because she has many customers. Her mother helps organize her workday and she appreciates his help arranging her schedule because, in this way, she can engage in other activities. She feels satisfied because she herself is generating a source of income and for this reason, she wishes to continue moving ahead and, with time, establish a larger store. At this time, she is requesting S/. 500 and she is very happy knowing that she will have financial assistance because, in this way, she will feel more secure in moving her business forward. With the requested amount, she will purchase rice, sugar, milk, eggs, and other items..
