Nelly's story

Nelly is a member of Banco Comunal Luz y Vida.


Nelly is single, 32 years old and has 3 children. Nelly travels to different markets in the region where she buys young animals and cheeses, products that she sells in the markets in the city of Ayacucho and sometimes brings to the Ayacuchana jungle. Nelly also makes dried potatoes (potatoes that are parboiled, peeled, chopped and dried in the sun), which are used in the preparation of local cuisine.


Nelly needs a loan of 750 soles, money that will be invested in the purchase of potatoes and to pay laborers.


Nelly’s dreams are to improve her businesses and offer a good education to her children.
