Pelagia's story

Pelagia is a member of the Power Community Bank. She is married, is 39 years old, and has 5 children. Pelagia travels to fairs, where she buys cereals, which she sells in the city of Cañete, where she travels every 15 days. Also, Pelagia sells potatoes in the market of Covadonga. Pelagia needs a loan of 1050 soles, which will be invested in the purchase of cereals and potatoes. Pelagia’s dreams are for her children become professionals and to have her own stand in the market.
