Lucila's story

Lucila belongs to the "Valle Sagrado" (Holy Valley) communal bank of Asociación Arariwa, and she is 56 years old. She currently lives in the city of Calca. Her main business activity is selling chicha de jora (a traditional Andean drink made of fermented corn). She has been in this business for 10 years, and it has gone very well for her. She needs the loan to buy beer and soft drinks. Her dream is to expand her chichería (the shop in which she makes and sells the chicha de jora). Lucila is grateful for the opportunity given to her through this medium, and she promises to pay off her loan on schedule.
