Nelly Ludgarda's story

Our business partner is Nelly. She belongs to the community bank "Mujeres Unidas" ("Women United"). She is originally from Cusco.

Nelly is 66 years-old. She is widowed with three children, who are 30, 34, and 35 years old. She is an unemployed professor. She alternates her day-to-day activities with clothing sales. Currently, she is selling beauty products from a catalog to continue her business. Nelly is a very happy and optimistic woman.

She is asking for a loan to acquire beauty products and store them; this way she will always have the perfumes and other cosmetics her customers request in stock. Nelly appreciates the ability to be able to continue growing her own business. She promises to repay her loan payment in the established time period.
