Anatolia is 44 years old. She is married and has six children, the youngest of whom is 12 years old and attends the local junior high. Some of her older children were unable to continue school because they did not have enough money.
Anatolia sells food at the Magdalena market in Ayacucho. She has been selling from her cart for many years. Furthermore, for the last month Anatolia has been renting a stand in the Nery G. market where she sells food staples such as flour, sugar, and milk.
Anatolia needs a loan of 2000 soles (3 soles = $1), which she will use to buy rice, sugarm noodles, milk, semolina, mayonnaise, and tuna fish.
One of the key features of the community bank is that each associate has an interest earning savings account. Anatolia plans to use her savings to pay for her children’s education and for any emergency that may arise. Her dream is to own a home, have a bigger business, help her children become professionals, and buy a motorcycle taxi that her oldest child would be able to operate.
