Agustina lives in the Chinchaya zone located forty minutes from downtown. It’s a bit far from the city but very beautiful geographically thanks to its vegetation and rivers. Most of the residents here work washing sand and rocks they get from the river that are used for construction. Some also raise dairy cows.

Agustina doesn’t wash sand nor does she raise dairy cows; she has two stores in her house, that’s near the main square, where she sells meat, vegetables, tubers, soft drinks and school supplies. Agustina’s husband is a driver and they currently have just one dependent, school age child.

Agustina is asking for the loan to buy building materials and supplies because she’s enlarging her house to proviD. more comfort for her family. She is a very well known person thanks to her good character and responsibility. She is very grateful to the institution for the support provided.
