Guadalupe belongs to the Ricchary Purisun Oropesa village bank and lives in the Oropesa province, located about 30 minutes away from Cusco.

She is 44 years old, a single mother, with 5 children who are 18, 17, 12, 10, and 5 years old. She lives in the Saylla district and runs a business selling bread in Oropesa. She runs her business while also taking care of her home and family expenses. She put up a stand next to a busstop in Oropesa where she sells the bread that she makes. She is very sad because, due to the heavy rains in Cusco last week, she lost her stand in Oropesa and her house in Saylla is about to fall down. The walls on the first floor got so wet that the house is leaning to one side. She is seeking a loan in order to buy ingredients to keep making bread and to eventually put together enough money to start over. Currently she lives with a friend from work.

She is very grateful for the opportunity she will receive through this loan and she commits to pay it back in the time allotted.
