View original language description ↓
Doña Juana is 45 years old, studied until third graD., elementary, she is married and mother of three children who still depend on her. Presently she makes ropes for a living which she started doing 13 years ago on her own initiative. The ropes are sold at the Sunday fair in the town of Ilave and her stand is located in Jirón Arica s/n. She is a member of the “Banco Comunal Lupakas” of the community of Huariquisana, District of Pilcuyo, Province of El Collao Ilave and Puno Region.

With her previous loans she has succeeded in increasing raw material as well as capital. With this loan of S/.500 ($200), to be repaid in four months, she will buy 150 kilos of hemp to make ropes. Juana is happy as she has increased her capital little by little in order to purchase material to make ropes and furthermore in the “Banco Comunal” she has learned to be responsible, to administer her money, and be punctual. Her future plans are to increase business at the markets of Juliaca, Puno, etc. and make her children study.
