A loan of $725 helped to buy corn.


Gladis's story

Gladis is 42 years old and both mother and father for her three children. Gladis currently lives in the city of Andahuaylillas in Quispicanchis province in the department of Cusco. Gladis makes and sells fermented corn that is used to make “chicha de jora”, a fermented corn beverage. Gladis has been participating in the communal bank “Las Triunfadoras” (The Winners) for a long time. With her next loan that she is waiting to receive, 2000 Peruvian Soles, she will invest in buying corn. She is grateful for the opportunity provided and commits to making her payments on time.
