Josefa's story

Josefa is a member of the village bank "Amauta."

Josefa is married, 40 years old, and has three children. Josefa sells firewood from her house, which she obtains in various towns of the region. Additionally, Josefa and her husband have a car which they use to transport cargo.

Josefa needs a loan of 3500 soles to invest in buying wood and changing the tires of her car.

Josefa's dreams are that her children finish their studies and can become professionals and to expand her business.
