Benedicta's story

Benedicta is 52 years old and assumes the role of both father and mother to her three children. She was born in the city of Iberia in the Province of Puerto Maldonado, but she lives in the city of Cusco. Benedicta is a hardworking and enterprising woman who succeeds on behalf of her family. She sells meals and distributes plates of food to taxi drivers who arrive at her small vending stand on the street. Benedicta has been in this business for six years and has done very well as a result of the effort she puts into her work. She also has a small grocery store that she opened six months ago. Benedicta is taking this opportunity to request a loan to buy supplies such as rice, sugar, noodles, and other ingredients. Her dream is to open a tourist restaurant.

Benedicta is a member of the Communal Bank “Sol de Oro” (Golden Sun), which is part of Asociación Arariwa. She is grateful for the opportunity being given to her and promises to complete her payments on time.
