Santusa
Santusa is the youngest of four children. At 20 years of age, she decided to make the family business progress. She lives in a house inherited from her parents when they died. She is prepared to work hard to better her situation. Although she is very young, Santusa already knows what it is to work without rest. Together with her siblings, she works arduously at her handcrafted weavings. Since her parents' death she has become a mother to her three siblings whom she loves very much and always cares for. Her day begins very early, but this does not bother her, as she enjoys weaving and even more so when they are handicrafts. What bothers her is transporting all her weavings to Bolivia, the country where she sells her articles because the trip is very expensive and tiring. Santusa wants to have a store in Juliaca where she can sell her products and increase the market for her sales and although she has only two years of experience, she trusts her siblings' advice and help for a better future. This is her first loan with MFP and she feels a great responsibility to repay the loan on time and she would like access to larger loans inthe future. She is a favourite of her community bank because she is the youngest member. She will use the loan to buy more wool to create more crafts and increase the amount of goods she transports to Bolivia.

Su día comienza muy temprano, pero eso no le molesta, ya que disfruta de tejer y más aun si son artesanías, lo que si le molesta es llevar todos sus tejidos hasta Bolivia, país donde vende sus artículos, ya que el viaje es muy costos y cansado. Santusa desea tener una tienda en Juliaca donde pueda vender sus productos y agrandar su mercado de ventas y aunque solo lleva 2 años de experiencia, confía en sus hermanos para que la guíen y le ayuden a tener un futuro mejor. Este es su primer préstamo con MFP, por lo cual se siente en la responsabilidad de pagarlo a tiempo, ya que quiere acceder a muchos más, en su banco comunal, le tienen mucho cariño ya que es la más joven. El dinero que solicita será utilizado en la compra de más lana para confeccionar más artesanías y aumentar la mercadería que lleva hasta Bolivia.
