(Quillabamba is the capital city of La Convención Province and an important commercial hub of the Lares and La Convención Valleys. The main activities are coca leaf, coffee, cocoa bean and fruit production.)

We visited the “Los Corazones Valientes de Morro San Juan” (Brave Hearts of San Juan Moor) in the city of Quillabamba and met its member, Elisabeth, there. She tells us:

“I was born in the city of Quillabamba. I’m 30 years old and live in the same city where I was born. My main activity is selling beauty products.”

She is going to be a mother for the first time; she is nine months pregnant.

On this opportunity she needs the loan to buy more cosmetics.
