A loan of $800 helped buy pots.


Jessika Mayra's story

Jessika is 31 years old. She is single and is a native of Cusco. She has a degree in teaching from the National University San Antonio Abad of Cusco. Now her main activity is teaching at the Túpac Amaru II school in Sicuani. Her supplemental economic activity is the production of artisanal yogurt, which she sells on weekends. She began selling yogurt a year ago, and it is going very well. Jessika is a hard-working and entrepreneurial woman who always looks for opportunities to advance with her daily efforts.


She needs the loan to buy pots for boiling milk. Her dream is to open a factory to produce butter, cheese, and yogurt.


Jessika belongs to the community bank "Los diamantes" (the diamonds) of the Arariwa Association. The bank has been functioning for 10 loan cycles, and this member declares that she is content and satisfied with the credit services, savings, and training for the time that she has been a bank member. She is also grateful for the opportunity offered through the loan and promises to make her payments on schedule.
