A loan of $450 helped to buy fruit and vegetables for retail sale.

Cerafina's story

This member belongs to the "LA ÑUSTA III" communal bank which is located in the district and province of Calca in the department of Cusco.

Mrs. Cerafina is 52 years old, married and has nine children. She buys and sells fruit and vegetables throughout Valle Sagrado at trade fairs in Urubamba, Calca and Ollantaytambo. She has a stall at the Calca market where she works on days when there are no fairs elsewhere.

She is a very optimistic, happy person who works hard to earn a living for her family. This is the only activity she is involved in for now.

She plans to use the loan to buy more fruit and vegetables for her business so she can keep up with customer demand. She is very grateful for the loan and committed to paying it back on time.
