Sandra is a member of the communal bank "Buena Suerte" (Good Luck). Sandra is married and has two children. She is 42 years old. Sandra sells cosmetic products through catalogues. She offers her products to friends and family members. Her customers pay her when they receive the product and sometime they make payments for the products. Sandra and her husband also sell ornamental fish, accessories for fish tanks and other related products. In her free time Sandra makes stuffed animals. Sandra needs a loan of 1,250 Soles which will be invested in the purchase of fabric to make stuffed animals. Sandra's dreams are to work hard, to get ahead, and to continue saving money for her children's high school and university educations.
