Maribell's story

Maribell is 30 years old, married, and has two children: Justo (12 years) and Andree (1 year). She lives in the city of Calca, in the department of Cusco, and is a member of the Arariwa Association’s Mamacha Asunta Community Bank. Maribell is a hardworking mother and businesswoman who gets up very early each morning to begin her daily activities such as preparing breakfast for her children and husband, and cleaning the house. After doing these chores, she takes food to the Modelo Market in Calca. She’s been selling food there for four years and has done very well, thanks to the effort she puts into her work. She needs a loan to buy items such as rice, sugar, noodles, oil, meat and vegetables for more meals. Maribell is grateful for this opportunity to get a loan, and promises to pay back the money according to the schedule.
