A loan of $500 helped to buy sweets and disposable plates.

Monica Mariela's story

Mónica is a member of the Florecer communal bank.

Mónica lives with her life partner, is 24 years old, and has one son. She sells sweets at the entrance gate of a school. In addition, Mónica wanders along a very busy avenue selling salchipapas (fried potatoes with sausage); this latter activity is at night.

Mónica needs a 1400 sol loan to buy sweets and disposable plates.

Mónica's dream is to buy her own house.
