Alejandrina's story

Alejandrina is a member of the “San Salvador Luminoso” Village Bank, which is located in the Capachica district, Puno province and department. She is a 38-year-old married mother of six children, who have all completed primary school and live in the Ccotos community.

For many years she has worked as a founding member of the Manuela Ramos movement. Her first loan was 300 soles to increase the capital of her handicraft fish business.

She requests a loan of 3000 soles, which she will invest in her business selling sheep meat in the market, handmade fish, and her work for the Islas de Taquile restaurants.

Her greatest wish is to give an education to her children.

She likes the savings.
