Marina's story

Marina belongs to the Ayllu communal bank - "ayllu" means "family" in Quechua. What she likes most about the bank is the training she receives as a member. Marina lives with her common-law husband and has two children in school. She is studying to be a stylist and she works every day in a spa. Her dream is to open her own spa one day. Marina also travels to Lima, where she buys pins and earrings that she then sells wholesale to various stores in her city. She is asking for a loan of 1050 Peruvian Soles to buy pins.
