Enedina Yolanda's story

Enedina is a member of the Chacco Communal Bank. She is a widow with three children, one of whom still lives with her and is in high school.

Enedina goes to the various regional markets to sell vegetable and to buy cereals that she sells in the Ayacucho wholesale foodstuffs market. She also buys corn and tara (Caesalpinia spinosa, a Peruvian plant rich in tannins) that she then sells to middlemen.

Enedina is requesting a 900 sol loan to buy tara.

Enedina’s dreams are to have a house of her own because she currently lives with her parents and that her daughter becomes a professional.
