Cirila
Cirila was born in the city of Cusco and still lives there with her husband and four children. Cirila has an eatery in her home located in the San Jerónimo district, Cusco province. She sells breakfast, lunch, dinner, soft-drinks and beer. She can be found tending to her restaurant, which is equipped with tables and chairs, seven days a week from 6am until 9pm or until her supply of food runs out. A regular flow of customers visits her establishment and the business keeps her on her toes during breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Cirila also raises small farm animals, like guinea pigs and chickens, to sell at “Vino Canchón” Market on Sundays.

Cirila expects to get $500 USD in her next loan. For the moment the restaurant is equipped with all the basics. She’d like to use the funds to buy merchandise like soft-drinks and beer.

The “Las Leonas de San Jerónimo” (San Jerónimo Lionesses) communal bank has been in operation for 10 loan cycles and Cirila is one of the bank’s founding members; she does quite well.
