Senobia's story

Senobia is a member of the Wiñarisun, which means “Let’s Grow” in Quechua, Community Bank. Senobia is 48, married, and has three children. Senobia has a place in the F. Vivanco market where she sells food. She does this every day with help from her daughters. Zenobia also has a small grocery store in her house. Senobia needs a loan for 3,000 PEN to buy rice, sugar, and oil. Senobia’s dreams are to have a "recreo" (a privately owned village center for recreation and food) and a stable work place.
