Antonia Idalinda
In the city of Charapoto, the communal bank "San Esteban" meets every 15 days. This place is known for its traditional culture, and also for being just minutes away from 2 of the best beaches in the province: San Jacinto and San Clemente.

This is where Antonia, 65, lives. She is in a common-law marriage that has produced 4 children who are now adult and independent. Her husband does not work, as he is retired.

At a very young age, Antonia learned dressmaking, and for many years she has had a small dressmaking workshop in her home. There she makes all types of garments; although what she enjoys making most of all is children's clothing. She works based on orders from individuals. In the current season, she also makes uniforms for the elementary and secondary schools in the town. She works every day when she has a lot of orders to deliver.

Antonia will use this new loan to buy fabric, thread, zippers and other supplies to make her garments. She's been with her communal bank for 12 years, and she likes it because the group is very united, and the members help each other.

Antonia's dream is to have good health.
