Candy Nattalli
Candy has worked with us since the beginning of the year 2010. During this time she has demonstrated responsibility and punctuality. Candy sells minced meat and egg “tucumanas” (fried turnovers) at the entrance to the area’s market. She is very well-known in the area because her tucumanas are very delicious. She has many customers who come from other zones solely to buy her tucumanas.

Another business activity she has is a small variety store, which is one of the first stands in the market. She sells toys, clothes, earrings, necklaces, and more.

She is requesting the loan to buy miniature replicas and “billetitos”(miniature money) for the Feria de las Alasitas. The Alasitas Fair is a handicrafts fair. Miniature replicas are primarily sold there and then used as offerings to the Pachamama (Mother Earth). People believe that their offerings will make their dreams come true. The name of the fair is derived from Challasita. Challasita or Alasita is a Jaya Mara word (From Time) from the first inhabitants of this land.

Candy will sell these miniatures at her store. She is a very hard-working person who sells a variety of products according to the season.

She is grateful to the institution for the support that has been provided.
