A loan of $900 helped to buy wholesale real and artificial flowers.

Nerith's story

Nerith is 54 years old, and lives in her own home with her husband, Jeremías, aged 55, and her beloved daughter, who is 19. They have seven children, but the others are already grown-up and independent.

Nerith works selling real and artificial roses and other flowers in the local general cemetery. She works alone, as over time, she learned how to manage her time to cope on her own. She began her flower business over 9 years ago. She really likes her work, because she enjoys talking with other sellers while she offers her flowers to the many people who come to visit the graves and mausoleums of their families. Things are going very well, although she doesn't yet feel fulfilled.

Before beginning this business she had financial problems. She would like to set up a shop dedicated to selling only flowers, because she feels like this is the right time to start growing and finding her own premises.

On this occasion, she is requesting a loan of s/.2500, and needs your help to achieve her goals. She will use the loan to buy real and artificial flowers to stock her business and increase her profits.
