Candy is 29 years old and is a hardworking woman who puts forth lots of effort. She is married to Guillermo, does not have any children yet, and lives in a home of her own with her husband, and 16 year old sister who helps her unconditionally. Candy sells men’s, women’s and children’s clothing of different colors and styles.

She has a small store located in the front part of her house and she waits for customers there every day. She works alone and she is in charge of every article of clothing she sells. She complements her work by selling perfumes, body creams, and other feminine products. She is asking for a loan of S/. 500 and is happy to know that she has financial support to continue with her plans. She is committed to being on time with her payments, as before. She will use the money to buy clothing such as blouses and skirts to sell from her shop.
