A loan of $725 helped operating capital for her grocery business.

Felicia Candelaria's story

Felicia is a member of the San Salvador Communal Bank, which is located in the District of Capachica, Province and Department of Puno. She is 44 years old, married, and has five children. Felicia did not complete her high school education.

Felicia engages in different activities such as selling groceries, buying and selling dried potatoes, and making crafts. She has been working with Manuela Ramos for ten years. The first loan she requested was for 300 PEN, which she used to buy wool for weaving.

Sra. Felicia is requesting a new loan in the amount of 2000 PEN to increase the capital for her grocery business. Her only dreams are for her children to become professionals and to move forward with her business. What she likes most about her Communal Bank are the people and the conveniences of the loan.
