Francisca Pilar's story

At the age of 30, Mrs. Pilar has more than ten years in the business of heavy transport. In a room in her home she has put a small convenience store/bookstore and in the afternoons she practices her profession: she is a primary school teacher (even though, in a particular way, she does it in her own house). Pilar does not stop dreaming bigger each time, because of which she will realize an optimal quality of life, considering, above all, her 11 year old daughter, who is very applied in school. The dream of being the best professional, and, at the same time, to be able to have and adulthood in piece. To begin to create this reality, Pilar is asking for a loan of 800 soles.
