Jennifer María's story

The credit group Santa Rosa Del Blanco meets every fifteen days in the city of Charapoto. This town is known for its traditional culture and also for being a few minutes from two of the best beaches in the province, including San Jacinto and San Clemente.
In this town lives Jennifer. She is 22 years old and has a common-law relationship and a one-year-old son. She is currently in the fifth month of pregnancy with her second child. Her partner is a farmer who has a truck with which he carries freight. Jennifer is a young housewife who helps her husband generate household resources by selling shoes and Belcorp products by catalog including beauty products, cosmetics, fragrances, and women's accessories. She sells door-to-door for three days a week for two to three hours each day. She sells her products on credit and collects the money each week. She has done this work for three years and is doing very well. With her profits she buys things for her little one and the baby she is expecting.
