Rosalia
View original language description ↓
Rosalia is 77 years old. She doesn’t have an education and speaks only Aymará (an Andean native language). She is married and has six children, five of whom have their own families. She owns her own home, which is located in Chimbo center in the Yunguyo district and province. For 50 years, Rosalia has raised the cows and pigs that her husband buys in various fairs and which he also sells in the Chacachaca and Yunguyo fairs.


Rosalia is a member of the Central Progreso Community Bank where she had an initial loan of 300 soles (about $105). She invested the loan money in the purchase of a calf. With this loan of 2,500 soles (about $900), which will be paid back in 4 months, Rosalia plans to purchase two small bulls. The bulls later will be sold for profit. As a member of the Community Bank, Rosalia has learned to make payments on time and support the bank. Her biggest dream is for her children to have good jobs. She also would like to buy a few more cows.
