A loan of $900 helped to purchase consumables and improve her home.


Juana's story

This communal bank is called “Ricchary Runa”; they meet every month in the afternoon in the Huanchac district, in the Cusco province and department.


Our member is Juana; She is married and has 5 children. She is 57 years old and is a native of Cusco, from a traditional neighborhood. She works in different businesses, such as the sale of tamales, sweets and snacks in the central market. She makes a delicious tortilla from corn and flour, which she fills with olives, onions, meat and salt. In the sweet tamales, she puts raisins. She is requesting this loan to improve her home and purchase materials for her tamale business.


She is grateful for the loan and for this reason, she promises to complete the payments of her debts on time.
