Leonela Katia's story

Leonela, age 21, is a hardworking woman. She lives in the community of Izcuchaca which is located in Huancavelica. She works collecting various grains that she then sells in her community.

She requests the micro-loan to buy corn kernels, increasing her production for sales. In the future, Leonela hopes to improve her house and to continue in good health.

She wears a mask in because the Peruvian government made this mandatory to avoid spreading Covid-19.
