Dios Bendice Pacaya Group's story

This solidarity group is made up of 6 hard-working women, coordinated by Señora Candelaria, who is 31 years old. She is married and has three children who are 12, 9 and 4 respectively. She works selling fruit and vegetables in the Huembes Market in the capital. She has been doing this for more than 20 years and she is asking for this loan in order to buy mango crops.
