Gloria's story

Gloria is a client of Asociación Arariwa. She is member of a village bank with 13 members in Cusco. The group is called Maquimanta Purisun (which means "walking together hand in hand" in Quechua). Gloria is 50 years old and lives in Cusco. She has two children, one in grade school and the other is a technician. Gloria sells umbrellas and walking canes. She buys her inventory from wholesalers in Lima and then sells them on the Avenida el Sol in Cusco. The rains have just arrived in Cusco and coincide with the upcoming holiday season. Gloria wants to take advantage of the increasing stream of visitors to town during this time of year and is therefore looking for a relatively large loan to buy additional inventory for the winter, her peak business season. Gloria appreciates and is thankful for the loan and promises to pay the monthly payments on time.
