Giovanna Carmen's story

Our member, Giovanna, belongs to the NUEVA VISION DE URUBAMBA community bank. She lives in the heart of the sacred valley of the Incas, Urubamba, about an hour and 10 minutes from the city of Cusco.

Giovanna is 35 years old, married and has 2 children, 15- and 10-years old. She spends part of her day running the family home and part of her day operating her retail business, a small grocery. She has a stand in Urubamba's model market. Our member needs the loan to buy merchadise (rice, sugar, pasta, milk, etc.) that she will resell to her customers. Her income goes to raising her children and feeding her family. Her greatest hopes are that her business prospers and that she can improve her family's quality of life.

Giovanna is grateful for the opportunities that micro-lending provides and is committed to repaying the loan in the agreed-upon time.
