However, she wants to succeed and she takes advantage of the meetings at the communal bank to learn to be responsible.

Gloria Núñez is married and has two children. She has a store which previously was not well stocked. Thanks to the loans she receives, it is now well stocked. Previously, her husband did not allow her to make her sales or to travel to Lima to bring her merchandise. However, she now speaks to him frequently and helps him understand that this is her business.

Veronica Q. is married and has five children. She sells cheeses, eggs, grains and crafts like hats and gloves. Only some of her children are in school and the others are not because there is not enough money. After last year's earthquake one of the walls of her home collapsed. She lost everything but the people in her community assited her. She is now more responsible with her money and she uses the loans she receives to purchase containers for the cheese and materials to knit her gloves and hats.
