Flor D. Maria is the president of the community bank Musuq Wasi, which means "new house" in Quechua. The bank members are from the community of Santo Domingo, which is located 20 minutes from the city of Ayacucho. It is a little valley where they produce vegetables and also raise small animals. Flor D. Maria lives in the house of her parents, and her greatest dream is to have her own house for her son. Flor is single and has one son, who is a student. Flor D. Maria raises guinea pigs. She has 40 cages at her house. She carries out this activity with the help of her father. She makes her sales in restaurants. In addition, Flor plants greens and other vegetables and sells them in the public market in the city. Her loan will be invested in the purchase of seeds and fertilizer. Flor wants to add to her cages and have a business, and she wants her son to have a good career.
