Velia Julia's story

This borrwer belongs to the “NUEVO AMANECER - CUSCO” ["New Dawn - Cusco"] communal bank. She lives in the district of Huanchac, in the province and department of Cusco.

Her name is Julia, and she is 51 years old and a single mother. She has an incomplete higher education, due to the lack of funds to continue her studies. She has 2 children, and she used to have a restaurant where she served breakfast and lunch. She is very good at seasoning food, which is why she ran the business for nearly 10 years, gradually constructing her home and educating her children. She has now changed her field and transformed her restaurant into a general store. She is requesting the loan to buy merchandise in order to stock her business.

Julia infinitely values and appreciates the loan offered to her, since it will permit her to expand her business and improve her quality of life. Accordingly, she is committed to making her payments on time.
