Juana's story

Mrs. Juana C. C. D. O. is 62 years old and lives in the Huanchac district of Trujillo province, in the department of La Libertad, Peru.

She is a member of the Community Bank Fuente D. Vida [Fountain of Life]. She has a high school education and has 4 children who help support her from time to time.

She works in the sale and rental of cars for use as taxis, and with her first loan of 300 Peruvian soles she bought spare parts in order to maintain the 2 cars that she had. With her next loan of 1000 Peruvian soles she will again buy parts to keep up the 3 cars that she now owns. Juana's dream is to expand her fleet of cars.
