She began her business making desserts and fried potatoes, and thanks to Manuela Ramos grew her business. She was able to buy materials to make necklaces, earrings, and frozen desserts. She is so hardworking that currently she is also doing hair styling, doing hair and cuts. Her business is located in her home.

With her first loan of 300 soles that she repaid in 4 instalments, she completed the purchase of her refrigerator and was able to have shaved ice, gelato, frozen cake, etc.

With this loan of 800 soles that she would repay in 6 installments, she would buy little tables and a mirror for the ambiance of her location.

Mónica dreams of having a pretty beauty salon.
