Carmen's story

Carmen belongs to the Amauta Communal Bank. The bank is located in the Cusco district, Cusco province, Cusco department.

Carmen is 81 years old, single, and has no children. She alternates her daily activities with her business of selling children’s toys. She sells things like remote control cars, dolls for girls, and balls. She also sells baby clothes to her relatives and friends.

She is requesting the loan to buy a greater variety of toys for her business.

She is grateful to those who are part of this dream through the loan. She pledges to make her payments on time.
