Francisca's story

Francisca lives in Patacamaya with her husband and nine children of various ages. They grow potatoes and quinoa on their land in the Santiago de Callapa community. They inherited the land from their grandparents, so they're continuing through the generations.

Francisca's very hardworking because having the responsibility of a big family made her think about getting more income. This is how she decided to start a business selling refreshments, gelatin, fruit salad, and other products. She does this job year round with the help of her older children, who sell in the streets to get more income for the family shopping basket.

The goal of the loan is to improve her sales stall. They need to buy chairs and have operating capital for her business.
