Nieves's story

This borrower belongs to the La Unión communal bank, located in the district of Cusco and also in the province and department of Cusco.


Nieves is 50 years old and has a live-in partner and two children. She alternates her daily activities with her grocery store business, which she attends to from 6am to 7pm to get her children ahead. She wants to expand her grocery store and she is requesting the loan to purchase products for her store like rice, sugar and pasta.


Nieves is grateful for everyone who is making this dream possible and promises to make her payments in the established time frame.
