Sheila's story

Sheila is 36 years old, a fighter, and a very hardworking woman. She is married and has 3 kids who live in her household. The work that Sheila does is the sale of different snacks such as gum, candy, cookies, chocolates, lollipops, juices, desserts and more. She has a building she rents monthly in a very busy area of the city.

Fortunately, she always has good sales during her work schedule. She replenishes her products on a weekly basis which allows her to invest in larger sums of money. She's been doing this for 7 years and on occasion she gets help from her spouse.

At the same time, she works in the distribution of beverages. What she likes about this job is that she can have an economic income she makes herself and it allows her to care for her needs and to devote some of her spending towards her home.

This time she will ask for 3,000 soles. She is very grateful for the opportunity and the confidence you all have in her to get the loan. Furthermore, she agrees to comply with her payments on time. With the requested loan, she will purchase more sweets such as candy, corn flakes, gum, cookies, snacks, along with some other things.
