A loan of $725 helped to buy cell phones to sell.


Anita's story

Anita is a member of the “Sr. de Tayancani” community bank which is located in Ocongate district, in Quispicanchis province, in Cusco department.

Anita has two children. She works buying and selling cell phones. Initially she sold emollients. She used to work from very early in the morning and return home at midday to then go out again from 5.00pm to midnight. She changed business and bought a couple of cell phones with her previous loan. She recharges her cell phones and rents them out at 50 cents a minute. She works as a street trader in the town square. Anita would like her loan to buy cell phones which she can sell in the town to different people. She would like this loan so that she can increase the small amount of capital which she already has and buy cell phones and accessories to sell.

Anita is grateful for the loan and appreciate it. She pledges to make her repayments in a timely manner.
