Delia Q. V. is a member of the community bank Juanito in Ayacucho, Perú. Delia spends most of her time making purses, bags, dolls, and baskets out of cloth.

Delia will use her loan of 1600 soles to pay a part of her rent and purchase more fabric to make her gifts. Delia dreams of having her own business--a small store where she can sell her artisan work. Since her rent is very expensive, she has been saving to purchase her own home so she can put her savings into her land instead of someone else's pocket.
