A loan of $725 helped purchase polo shirts to sell to tourists.


Valeria's story

Valeria is a widow and has three children who are independent. She has a store in the cultural center of San Cristóbal where she sells a variety of handicrafts. Valeria acquires her products from artisans in the region. She also places orders for polo shirts that have images of the city of Ayacucho on them. These items are very popular with tourists.

Valeria is a member of the Communal Bank “Wiracocha”, which means “Sun God” in Quechua. She is requesting a loan of 2000 PEN to buy printed polo shirts to sell to tourists. Her greatest wish was to visit the Holy Land, which she was able to accomplish a few months ago. Now she wants to travel to Mexico to see the Shine of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
