Dúo San Luis Group's story

Dúo San Luis
Marcela is 28 years old. She works everyday selling all types of candles. San Luis is located inside the San Juan Sacatepéquez town market. This is where she sells her candles as well as other products that she makes with her brother in her home. Thanks to the service and the place where her business is located, Marcela’s sales are good and she earns a good income which she uses to pay for construction on her house. She also reinvests to attract more customers in various neighborhoods and villages in an itinerant manner. With her older brother’s backing, she is requesting this loan to buy supplies to make candles.
