Fuerza 2008 Group's story
These members belong to the communal bank "Fuerza 2008", which is located in the district of Cusco, in the province and department of Cusco. Ruth Maribel is one of the members. She is single, 28 years old, and has one child. She has a hardware business, where she sells nails, paint, and tools. She works from 9:00am until 6:00pm. She has had the business for eight years and it is going very well. In her free time, she likes to take her child to the park to play. Her dream is to expand her hardware business. She is requesting the loan so she can buy merchandise for her hardware store, such as nails, paint, and tools. The other members make a living from a café business, a food-selling business, an Internet business, and a candy-selling business. Ruth Maribel is grateful to those who are part of her dream through this site, and she is committed to making her loan repayments within the set period.
