Carmen
The “Salud y Vida” (Health and Life) communal bank meets every two weeks in the city of Charapoto. This location is known for its traditional culture and also for being just a few minutes from two of the province’s best beaches: San Jacinto and San Clemente. Carmen, 64, lives here. She’s been separated for several years and has six children who are all adults now; only one of them still lives with her.

In order to get ahead since she’s alone, she works making and selling food. She has a restaurant downtown where she prepares her delicious dishes that are highly enjoyed by her customers. She works Monday through Friday from 5am until 2pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 4am until 8pm. Her son helps her with the work. Her customers prefer her because her cooking is delicious; her specialty is oven-baked fish.

She will use this loan to buy foodstuffs used in her delicious dishes. She’s a founding member of the communal bank and likes it because of the help the loans provide. Her dream is to have a more spacious locale and above all to be in good health.
