Sulma's story

Sulma lives in a rented home. She lives with her live-in partner and has one son. Sulma sells cheeses which she buys in the town of Sachabamba. She travels two and a half hours every week to Sachabamba. She makes her sales at the markets and also sells door-to-door. Most of her sales are on credit. She also sells clothing which her clients order. These sales are also on credit. Sulma belongs to the community bank Llapanchik which means "all of us" in Quechua. Sulma needs a loan in the amount of 2000 PEN. She will use this loan to buys cheeses as well as the clothing she buys in Lima. Sulma dreams of having her own home and providing an education for her son.
