Irene's story

Irene belongs to the “Glorioso” communal bank and what she likes the most about it is the incentive for saving. Irene is married and she has two children who are studying. She lives in the district of Chiara, which is located 45 minutes from the city of Ayacucho. Irene has a restaurant in her house where she serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She also sells ice creams, fruits, and gelatins that she prepares. Irene also has a small grocery store in the same place. She works in both of these businesses everyday, with the help of 2 people.

Irene is requesting a loan of PEN 3000.00, which she will use to buy soft drinks and a photocopier to expand her services.

Irene dreams of having a restaurant in the city of Ayacucho and also that her children will study in the city of Ayacucho.
