A loan of $425 helped purchase a display case for the candy she sells.


Nieves Vanessa's story

Nieves is a member of the Alondras Community Bank. She is a 26-year-old mother of two and lives with her common-law husband. Nieves has Internet stations in her home, and she runs them with the help of her husband, who is a computer technician, and she also sells snacks and office supplies. She is requesting a loan of 1200 soles (approximately $425), which she plans to use to purchase a display case for the candy she sells. Nieves' dreams are to expand her business and start construction of her home.
