A loan of $1,050 helped to buy cattle.

Martina's story

Martina, 60, is married and has one son. She only finished second graD. and lives in the Pilcuyo district, El Collao province, Puno department. She is one of the founding members of the "Ciudad Nueva" (New City) communal bank. She and her husband are cattle ranchers and for the past three years she has also raised guinea pigs. With her first, 300 sol loan, she bought a head of cattle. She tells us that she is very happy that she doesn't have to wait very long to get credit and the loans are granted easily. With this new, 3,000 new sol loan, she will buy two small bulls. Her greatest wish is to increase her herd of improved cattle and also to raise improved sheep.
