A loan of $1,000 helped investing in improving her housing.


Gabriela's story

Gabriela V. P. is 31 years old and single. She lives together with her mother, Rosalía P. Solís, who is already an elderly grandmother, in Colomi, in Candelaria community toward the north.

Gabriela works selling groceries every day. She also works in agriculture, producing potatoes, beans and papa lisa (ulluco). In this way, she supports both of them, mother and daughter. For this reason, she appeared in the office to request a loan, because they need to build a house on a lot they purchased along the road. She will also move her grocery business there and have a better income. Finally, Gabriela reports that she will expand her grocery sales to provide better living conditions and live more comfortably together with her beloved mother.
