Candelaria's story

Candelaria is a member of the “Llapanchik” communal bank, which means “Everyone Together” in Quechua.

Candelaria is separated, she is 42 years old, and she has 2 children. She has a kiosk inside the stadium in the city of Ayacucho where she sells sweets and soft drinks, which she does with her children’s help. Candelaria needs a loan of 1200 PEN, which she will invest in the purchase of sweets and soft drinks.

Candelaria’s dream is to improve her business.
