A loan of $200 helped to buy odontological materials.

Linda's story

Linda, who is 42 years old, is married and has four children, whom she lives with in her own home. Linda offers dental services to people for a living; her main job is to work as an assistant at the office she set up with her husband nine years ago. She actively intercedes to remedy pains, dental discomfort, or she simply helps to improve a person's appearance by giving him or her a beautiful smile. She works at her husband's side at specific times and she has her office in a rented space close to her home. She likes her business very much as it allows her to manage her duties adequately and because it also provides her with good income thanks to the large quantity of people she treats at her office. She is currently requesting 500 soles; she is very happy to know that she will have financial support, as that makes her feel confident in moving ahead with her business. She also promises to make her payments on time. With the requested sum, she will buy odontological materials to contribute to her dental laboratory.
