Antonia's story

Antonia has three children and lives in the community of San Isidro de Chicón located 15 minutes from the city of Urubamba, Cusco, Perú. Chicón’s residents are mostly farmers and raise livestock.

Antonia is a hard working, enterprising woman who supports her family. She raises small farm animals like guinea pigs, chickens, pigs and other small animals that are used for her family’s consumption. Antonia needs the microloan to buy animals and to buy feed.

Antonia is a member of Asociación Arariwa’s “Los Dinámicos de San Isidro de Chicón” (San Isidro de Chicón’s Dynamic Ones) communal bank and she is grateful for the opportunity provided by this means; she also commits to repay in a timely fashion.
