Ibis's story

Ibis, who is 28 years old, is married and has two children, ages 7 and 5. She lives in the house of her in-laws. Ibis sells soft drinks, and sometimes she also sells beer. Every day she opens the doors of her house, where she has a space prepared for serving the customers who arrive in search of some beverage to quench their thirst. She continually stocks her business, buying the quantity of soft drinks necessary for the day's sales. She offers for sale various brands and flavors at different prices. She has been doing this work for 6 years, and up to now she has been doing it alone. She feels that her business is very profitable, thanks to the demand that exists in the city where she lives, which translates into considerable economic earnings. During the time that she has had this business, she has learned to be very responsible with her sales, since she sells soft drinks to all types of customers, but she sells alcoholic beverages only to adults, as required by law.

At this time she is applying for 3000 PEN. She is very happy for the financial support that they offer her so that she can continue forward with her work. She promises to make all her payments punctually. With the amount she has applied for, she will buy progressively greater wholesale quantities of beverages with different brands and packaging.
