Liliana's story

Liliana, who is 38 years old, is married and has four children. She was born in the Anta Provincia district of Cusco, and she now lives with her husband in the same city.

Liliana bakes bread and rents her neighbor's oven. She has been working with the oven for two years, and things are going very well.

Liliana hopes to receive a loan of $600 USD, and she will use this money to buy ingredients such as flour, yeast, sugar, salt, etc. Liliana's dream is to buy some land and build her own oven.

Liliana belongs to the Velasco Astete communal bank, of Kiva partner UMF Asociación Arariwa. The communal bank is in its first year of operation, and it is well administered by the board of directors.
