Emma Gloria's story

Emma is a humble mother. She belongs to the Virgen Purificada – Angostura Communal Bank. She is 47, married, and has four daughters. She lives in the San Jerónimo district in the Angostura community, which is south of the city of Cusco.

She has a farm where she grows grass (food for guinea pigs), and she distributes it from her own home to the women who sell it. She also has a small grocery store. She has worked in the business for several years. It has gone very well for her thanks to all of the effort that she puts into her work. She is an enterprising and hard-working mother who wants to get her family ahead.

She needs a loan to buy more seeds and to increase her business capital in the store. She will buy more food like rice, sugar, noodles, and vegetables.

She is grateful for the opportunity of the loan, and she promises to pay it on time.
