Margarita's story

Our member Margarita is a humble mother who belongs to the Virgin of Chapi Communal Bank. She is 47 years old, married, and has 4 children. The 3 eldest, Maynor, Eduard, and Lehaz, study in the University, while the youngest, Fabiola, is in public school. They live in the district of Santiago, Province of Cusco.


Margarita has a small business selling dry goods such as corn, wheat, barley, beans, and peas. These products are brought from the valleys of Mollepata and Anta. She germinates grains of corn in her own home and sells them to the makers of 'chicha', the local alcoholic beverage. She has been doing this for years and it has gone very well, thanks to the effort she has put into it. She is a hard-working and enterprising mother who is advancing her family.


Margarita needs a loan to increase her business's capital and buy more corn and dry goods. She is grateful for the opportunity offered by this means and she also promises to comply with the corresponding repayment schedule.
