Jesusa's story

Jesusa is 46 years old and was born in the community of Huaroconco in the Anta province of the department of Cusco. Now Jesusa lives in the community of Yanahura; she has been living there for a number of years. She serves as both mother and father for her 6 children, because she is separated from her partner. Jesusa tells us that in the community where she lives the people do work related to agriculture and livestock. She, for example, has a business selling fruit and vegetables. She says that she takes her vegetables to the city of Quillabamba, and returns to her community with fruit to sell in the city of Urubamba. At this time, she is requesting a small loan to increase her business capital; she wants to buy vegetables and fruit.

Jesusa belongs to the communal bank "Villa Marcela de Virgen del Carmen” which is part of the Asociación Arariwa. She has been working with her fellow group members for several years.
