Maura is a member of the Ccori Soncco (“Heart of Gold” in Quechua) Village Bank. She is married and has ten children. She has a store in her house in the Enace neighborhood where she sells general dry goods, vegetables, meats, and grains with the help of her husband. She also caters meals for various occasions.
Maura needs a loan of 2000 soles (US$325) which she will use to buy grains, sugar, pasta and oil. Maura’s dreams are for her children to grow up to be professionals, to expand her store and to equip it with all of the necessities.
