Clelia
Clelia is 44 years old and her greatest driving force is her two children. Currently she lives in Ayacucho where she has a house made of adobe. Motivated by the desire to get ahead, she left behind her business selling chickens due to low demand, which left her with financial losses. That is why she started selling food and traditional regional dishes 20 years ago. She sells in a small market next to other merchants, located in a park in her district.

Clelia notes that she enjoys her work. Although her business is demanding, it does not require too many hours, and she has established herself in a very busy area. Nevertheless, there are rainy days when she has fewer customers. Since she is a very enterprising mother she has been planning to open a small dressmaking establishment to earn extra money and improve her finances.

All of her plans and work have a single goal, that of insuring that her children have a future. She wants to acquire a piece of land on which she can start building a house made of bricks and concrete. This is her third loan. Along with other members of her communal bank, she agrees that the basis of progress is a sense of responsibility and order.

This loan of S/.1,000 will increase her capital so that she buy a sewing machine and other tools with the goal of opening a small dressmaking business.
