A loan of $725 helped to fix a wall and purchase merchandise.


Violeta's story

Violeta belongs to the community bank "Ricchary Purisun-Oropesa". She lives in the district of Oropesa within the municipality of Cusco, 30 minutes from the imperial city of the Incas. Violeta is 40 years old, a single mother and has a son aged 21 years. She sells beer for a living and has a small beer-selling shop. However, the floods last week in Cusco caused one of the walls of the shop to collapse, and Violeta needs a loan in order to fix the wall and to purchase a little merchandise to help her business along. Her shop is located on the Cusco-Arequipa highway. Violeta is grateful for such an opportunity to improve her business. She is committed to the terms and agreements of the loan and to timely repayments.
