Julia Candelaria's story

Julia Candelaria T. Vásquez is 34 years old and married. She has a business selling French fries, with her own sales cart. She lives with her husband and 4 children. She and her husband work together and have an employee to help them. For the past 13 years, they have worked in this business, which is located in Paraje Paquechop, in the canton of Xesacmaljá, Department of Totonicapán, Guatemala, Currently, the demand from her customers has been rising, but the current economic conditions have not been favorable enough to allow her to increase her capital. For this reason, she came to the ASDIR Association to request a loan, with the aim of purchasing supplies, and thus increasing her sales, while hoping also to help her children get ahead and provide them with a better quality of life.
