Candelaria Lissette
Candelaria Lissette T. S. is 25 years old and lives in the department of La Libertad together with her parents, her sister and her two daughters, Johana aged 11 and Yadira aged 4.

A year ago, Candelaria understood that she needed her own store, as she had great difficulties to get a job with a good salary due to her education level. She realized that there was no other store in her area, and indeed she was well accepted by her neighbors who ensured her an excellent turnover. Today, Candelaria is ready to invest more in her store. That’s why she needs a loan to increase her inventory and take advantage of her continued success.
