Paulina's story

Paulina is a member of the Rikchary Community Bank which means Wake Up in quechua.

Paulina is 52 years old, married and has 9 children. Paulina sells various crafts. Her shop is located on a central street. The shop is rented. She also has a bar at her son’s house in the city of Huanta where she counts on staff for help.

Paulina needs a loan of 1200 PEN, money she will invest to buy alpaca wool sweaters.

Paulina’s dreams are to save for her children’s degrees and fill her store with more products.
