Mercedes's story

Mercedes is a member of "Banco Comunal Estrella" and what she likes the most are the joyful meetings with her friends.

Mercedes is married, 43 years old with 3 children who are studying. Mercedes sells vegetables from a tricycle on different streets in the District of San Juan Bautista. Her day starts at 5 o'clock in the morning when she buys her supplies at the market, assisted by her older daughter. Her loan will be invested in buying apples, bananas, carrots, and onions.

It is Mercedes' dream to add a second floor to her house and that her daughter graduate.
