Olga
View original language description ↓
Olga is 29 years old and she completed her education up to primary school level. She has two daughters and one son, is married and lives in the El Collao province of the Puno region.



She is an active member of the communal bank “22nd of September” in M.. With the first loans she received, she started a business buying and selling sheep at the street market in Ilave. With later loans, she and her husband decided to also raise livestock. In addition, they began buying and selling regional products such as potatoes, potato flour, geese, and tunta (derived from potatoes) at the weekly markets in the cities of Camiachi and Punto.



They would use half of this loan of 2,000.00 soles, to be repaid in 4 installments, to buy a young bull. The other half would be used to buy regional products such as potatoes, chuño and tunta (potato derivatives) to sell at the Puno market on Saturdays. They hope to increase their sales and, therefore, generate greater income to help them financially. The loan would be repaid over a period of four months.



Her dream is to augment her income enough to buy a house in the city of Ilave and start up a workshop making skirts/petticoats and to continue raising livestock. Her goal is for her children to continue their studies and become professionals.
