Leocrecia's story

Leocrecia is a member of the Retoño Village Bank. She is 36 years old and is married with five children. Leocrecia and her husband are recyclers of iron, rubber, disposable bottles, slippers, pots, copper, and bronze, which they buy by the kilogram. They recycle these items in a business that they own in the San Juan Bautista district. Leocrecia has a car which they use to travel to different districts and also within the city of Ayacucho to recycle everything they find. After collecting everything, they send it to the city of Lima.


Leocrecia needs a loan of 1,000 soles, which she will invest in the purchase of plastics and iron. Leocrecia dreams of buying a mill to grind plastics, of building a good home and that her children will grow up to become working professionals.
