Zulema's story

Zulema is a 23-year-old woman and a single mother with one child. She works selling stuffed animals. She is enterprising, independent, strong, dedicated, persistent and very hard working. She conducts business in the zone "16 de Julio," a place characterized by business in all areas.

Zulema is dark skinned with long black styled fashionably and has a medium build. Her style of dress is modern and combines Spanish fashion with el Aymara, both at work and in casual settings. She sells stuffed bears and has been engaged in this work for a year; Monday to Sunday from 10 in the morning until 9 at night.

She hopes to increase sales because she needs to cover the costs of education for her five year old son. She wants to buy stuffed animals primarily to increase her profit margin and generate more income. It is for this reason that Zulema is requesting a loan to buy stuffed bears and cover the cost of education for her young son.
