Delia's story

Delia is a member of the Agua Viva Microfinance Institute. Delia is a 39-year-old married mother of 6 children. Delia travels to the Putaja market once a week to buy grains and tubers, which she then transports to the city of Ayacucho to sell at the wholesale markets. Delia also has a general store, in which she sells provisions, fruits, vegetables, and meats, in her home in the Covadonga settlement. She runs the store with the help of her husband and children.

Delia needs a loan of 3,000.00 PEN, which she will invest in purchasing sugar, rice, wheat, barley, and peas. Delia dreams of providing an education to her children, of making home improvements, and of expanding her business.
