Antonia's story

64-year old Antonia is separated from the father of her two daughters aged 24 and 22 with whom she lives in her own house. She earns her living selling soft drinks from a refrigerator located in her home. The fridge keeps the drinks at a temperature that her customers like, and they buy them from her to drink in other places. Antonia has had this business for over three years. She is helped by her daughter.

She decided to start the business so she could pay for household expenses after her husband left her. It's a business where you can't lose as soft drinks are always in demand, so Antonia is planning to expand it. She is seeking a loan of S/. 1500 and is very grateful for the money to invest in her business. She wishes to have more loans in the future so promises to make the repayments punctually. The loan will be used to buy drinks wholesale.
