Sisinia's story

Sisinia is a member of the “Kantu de San Jerónimo” communal bank of the Arariwa Association. She is 36 years old and married, and she lives in the city of Cusco. Sisinia is the mother of two sons who are still dependent on her. Their names are Edwin and Eduardo. Sisinia is excited because she is currently five months pregnant, and she hopes the baby will be a girl. Sisinia is a hard-working and enterprising woman who has taken the initiative to start her own business selling food products. She tells us that she prepared a room in her home to serve as a sales area for her products. She has worked at this business for the past two years, and it has gone very well for her, thanks to the dedication she brings to her work and her determination to help her children learn a professional career. Sisinia needs this loan to buy more merchandise, such as sugar, noodles, rice, flour and many more items. She would like to operate a grocery store and offer a variety of products. Sisinia's dream is to open a supermarket in her neighborhood, since the existing supermarkets are far from her area. She is grateful for the opportunity provided to her in this manner, and she is committed to making all of her payments on schedule.
