Francisca Candelaria
Francisca is 55 years old. She lives in the town of Nagarote and her business is selling meals in her home where her customers come to savor the different dishes that she makes. One of Francisca's main challenges is time since, in spite of the fact that she gets up early, she has to do her housework, do the shopping, cook and do other things besides. She will use her loan to increase her supplies since she needs basic grains, bags, plates, cutlery, napkins and soft drinks for her business. She is a very hard-working person and her wish is to continue working while she still enjoys good health.
