Gregoria
Gregoria was born in the city of Cusco (Perú). She is 54 years old, and she lives in the same city where she was born. She is happy because she is married, and they have two children. (Cusco is known for having beautiful scenery and for being a tourist zone). She belongs to the María Auxiliadora Communal Bank with the Arariwa Association. They meet every month in the house of one of the members in the San Jerónimo district in the city of Cusco.

We met Gregoria at the Communal Bank meeting. She tells us that she has a small hardware store, but she rents the place. She has worked in this business for 12 years, and it is going very well for her.

She now needs the loan to buy more merchandise like; for example; nails, iron, paint, and other things.

Ya son 12 años que se dedica a este negocio y le va muy bien.
