Candelaria's story

Candelaria never attended school. She is single and lives with her mother and her two daughters who attend school. She cares for her mother because she is elderly. Candelaria has owned a fruit and vegetable stand for two years which she runs herself. Before, she worked with a friend and learned the business and decided to do this work. She travels five kilometers from her home to the stand and sells from Monday to Sunday from 7:00am until 4:00pm. Candelaria needs this loan to stock her business with more fruits and to purchase a larger quantity of fruits and vegetables so she can sell them at a lower price to her customers. Candelaria dreams of having the best fruit and vegetable stand and she hopes that her daughters grow up and become professionals.
