Pelagia's story

Pelagia is a member of the Ladrilleros de Compañía [Bricklayers of Compañía] Community Bank. She is 45, married, and has 2 children. She makes bricks in the Compañía community. She will invest the requested loan in the purchase of firewood and coal for brick burning. She learned this work as a child, as her parents did it. She now does this work with her husband. She sells their bricks in the Ayacucho markets, or sometimes to customers who buy them in the community. She enjoys her Community Bank meetings because they practice fellowship, teach values and give loans. Her dream is for her business to grow.
