Irma's story

Irma is a member of the Communal Bank “Las Palmeras” (The Palms). She is separated from her spouse and has four children in school. Irma has a sewing workshop in her home where she makes traditional clothing such as Ayacuchano flannel dresses and other types of garments. She operates her business with the help of her daughter and occasionally other people depending on the level of demand. Her sales are conducted at the markets in the city of Ayacucho and also at the fairs.

Irma needs a loan of 1000 PEN to invest in the purchase of fabrics. Her dreams include providing an education for her children and increasing her inventory of merchandise.
