Yaneth's story

Yaneth is 68 years old and lives in the beautiful city of Cusco, Peru. She has been a member of Arariwa's “Patrón de San Sebastián” community bank for a long time. Yaneth is a single mother since her partner abandoned her together with her two children. She is a hard-working and enterprising woman who has a small grocery store where she sells groceries and Christmas products. Yaneth plans to use her loan for $450USD to increase her business capital. She would like to buy Christmas products such as panettones, Christmas arrangements and many other things. She is grateful for the opportunity which she is being given with this loan and therefore pledges to make her repayments in a timely manner.
