Alfonsa's story

Alfonsa lives with a partner and has 4 children, 2 of whom are in school. Alfonsa has a bar in her house where she sells drinks. She works in this business every day, with the occasional help of her husband. In addition, Alfonsa and her husband make artisan textiles with the help of weavers. Alfonsa embroiders the products, and they are sold to traders that come from the city of Cusco and Puno. In addition, they have a musical group. She requests a loan of 1,500 Peruvian soles that she will invest in the purchase of musical instruments.

Alfonsa dreams of finishing construction on her home by putting a roof on the second floor, and of being able to help her children.
