Nancy's story

Nancy is a 25-year-old woman with a daughter who is a year and four months old. Nancy is a hardworking and responsible woman who sells handicrafts and is married to a painter. She used to help him out during her free time, but now that she has learned this skill, she devotes her time to her business. She states that set up a room in her house as her very own paint studio, where she spends hours making paintings. She has been in business for 4 years, and it has been very prosperous thanks to the efforts that she puts into her work. Nancy needs this loan to purchase stretcher bars, canvas, paint, and oil paint. Our client's greatest wish is to own an art gallery in which she can sell her products. This year, however, she will rent a gallery in Cusco's Plaza of Arms, where she will sell her paintings.

Our client is grateful for the opportunity that has been given to her by the institute, and she is committed to making her payments according to the loan terms.
