Alcida's story

Alcida, 30 years old, has a partner and two children and lives in the Rumichaca community in Urubamba City. Alcida noticed that her neighbors would have to go long distances to buy their groceries. Sabina opened a small grocery store in her home where she sells groceries to her neighbors. For Sabina, this was an opportunity for work, and this way she can provide the best for her children and give them a better future. Her husband, Andres, is an employee in a condominium. He contributes to the household expenses with his income. Alcida participates in the communal bank, and it is going very well for her because she is a responsible person and is punctual about paying her bills. She needs a loan to be able to purchase more products such as rice, noodles, sugar, etc. Alcida is grateful for the opportunity that the loan provides her, and in addition, she commits to making the payments on time.
