Duo San Luis Group's story

Doña Marcela, who is the leader of the Duo San Luis, is 27 years old, married, and orginally from the town of San Juan. She has two children, ages six and four. For 15 years, she has produced and sold candles and votive candles made from parafin. Doña Marcela learned her craft from her father who began this business many years ago. She manages to sell her products in a small shop inside her local market, and she works alongside her brother who is responsible for distributing the merchandise to various shops in districts and towns in their municipality. Doña Marcela is applying for this loan in order to buy wax for the production of her candles.
