Victoria's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to invest in the purchase of basic needs items and in her home.

Victoria's story

This communal bank goes by the name “Señor de Coylluritti de Ccorao” and it is located in the town of Ccorao – Pisac, which forms part of the Province of Calca and the Department of Cusco.

Victoria is 34 years old, has a live-in partner and has four children (16, 15, 13, 5). She has a grocery store and will invest half of the loan into building her house, and the other half into her grocery store. She is requesting the loan to invest in the purchase of basic needs items (rice, sugar, pasta and other items) and in her house.

Victoria is grateful and wishes to state that she will be disciplined and make her loan repayments.
