Nelly Nancy's story

Nelly Nancy Sánchez A. is 42 years old and lives in the Moche district of Trujillo province in the state of La Libertad, Peru. She completed secondary school and is single.

Nelly's business is selling crafts, including stuffed animals, artisanal chocolates, and all types of gifts. She has found her business to be a good investment, especially her homemade chocolate products. Her business is located in her home.

She is a member of the “Luis Alberto Sánchez II” Community Bank and invested her first loan (for 300 Peruvian nuevos soles) in ingredients to make chocolates and lollipops. She will use the money from this loan (for 700 nuevos soles, to be repaid in four months) to purchase materials to make stuffed animals and to continue her business selling crafts.

Nelly's dream is to grow as a businessperson, have her own shop, be financially independent, and be able to support her family.
