A loan of $1,000 helped to increase working capital and infrastructure.

Maritza's story

Maritza lives in Alto Lima district. She is from a humble family. She has two small children and her husband works in a technical field independently. Maritza belongs to the “Santiago Querido” communal bank. The loan she received was used to increase her working capital. She sells quilts and bed sets in the doorways of buildings which host events such as weddings, graduations, baptisms, etc. She also used part of the money to refurbish one of the front walls of her house. Maritza is very responsible in her obligations and has better prospects for improving her living conditions in the future.
