Candelaria Marina's story

Mrs. Candelaria Marina G. M. is a member of the Banco Comunal "Flor Andina" in the M. neighborhood, Plateria district, Puno province, Puno department. She is 43 years old, single and has no children. She completed middle school.

She has worked with the Movimiento Manuel Ramos for the past two years. She is an artisan knitter and her first loan was for 300 new soles which she used to purchase wool for her knits. She now needs a loan of 1000 new soles which she will pay back in four payments. These funds will be used to acquire additional alpaca fiber at wholesale which she will spin into yarn in order to knit sweaters, mittens, caps, etc., in other words, whatever her customers require. Her wish is to purchase a small cart to transport her knits to the various regional fairs.
