Lisseth Melyssa's story

Lisseth is 21 years old. She has a son and lives in the city of Cuzco, Perú. After doing her house work, Elisabeth works selling artisanal crafts in the Plaza de Armas in the city of Cuzco as a street vendor. She has had this business for five years now and it is going very well for her. Lisseth needs the loan to buy merchandise. For example, silver artisanal handicrafts. Lisseth's dream is to have her own large store where she can have a variety of artisanal handicrafts.

Lisseth belongs to the “Yahuar Maqui” community bank, of the Asociación Arariwa. She is grateful for the opportunity offered in this way and committed to making the payments according to the schedule.
