San Martin - Izcuchaca Group's story

Clara is an enterprising woman, age 39, single, and has two school-aged children.
She spells special bread in the local plaza and uses her income to cover the household costs and, above all, for the education of her two young children.
Clara started this business at a very young age, because she helped her parents.
She starts selling her breads at 4:00 am and works until 5:00 pm, every day.
Her greatest dream is to have a bakery and for her children to be professionals; she was only able to attend primary school.
She is very happy and grateful for the help of having this loan to invest in her business.
