Cidlia's story

Señora Cidlia is a member of the community bank "Corazon de Jesus" (Heart of Jesus). She lives in the region of San Martín, in the province of Dorado, and in the district of San José de Sisa. She is dedicated to the sales of office supplies, ornaments, and cell phones. She complements this business with the sales of cosmetics from the brand of Esika. She began with a capital of 300 Soles in a rented site and worked with just a table, chair, and a display case. With the loan of 1300 Soles, which she will pay back in four months, she will buy talcs, deodorants, nail polishes, creams, dozens of glasses, cell phones, and other supplies that she needs to give her business a good boost and satisfy the needs of her clients. Cidlia is 42 years old. She lives with her husband and has two children who are students and help her with the business. She is a friendly, positive, and hard working person. She thinks that there are no barriers if one has the desire to do things well and move forward. Her goal is to increase her business and buy a little house so that she won't have to pay to rent her business space and in this way be able to support her husband in meeting the household expenses.
