A loan of $1,200 helped to buy large quantities of rice and sugar.

Elvira's story

Elvira belongs to the Mosoc Runa ["New People" in Quechua] communal bank, which is located in the district of Cusco, in the province of the same name.

Elvira is 45 years old and is married with two children. Each day she tends to her chores and also runs a business selling sugar and rice. She has a store where she sells these items wholesale, and distributes them to various stores. Elvira also runs a small food stand at a local school. She wants to improve her sugar and rice selling business, and is asking for the loan to buy large quantities of rice and sugar.

Elvira is thankful for the loan and promises to make her payments within the established time period.
