Kristel's story

She is supported by her mother and has been a member of the community bank “Las Heroínas” (the Heroines) for one year. She began with a loan of 300 soles that allowed her to invest in her business by purchasing wallets. With this loan of 1000 soles, she will buy articles of clothing and accessories such as belts for women, bracelets and other items. Her goal is to finish her course and obtain a university title.
