Marina's story

Marina was born in the Chumbivilca province in the department of Cusco and is 51 years old. Currently, she lives in an Incan city (in Cusco, Peru) with her three sons. She is a responsible mother who is focused on moving forward with her family. Her main economic activity is selling food. She tells us that she sells these items at the last stop of the "La Liebre" urban transportation line (either taxis, minibuses, rickshaws or buses).

She has worked in this business for many years and it's going very well thanks to the dedication she puts into her work.

Marina, in this opportunity, needs this loan in order to expand her business's capital and she wishes to buy more products such as rice, noodles, meat, vegetable and other things that she needs.

Marina is a very responsible person who belongs to the communal bank "Ana Jarvis III" of the Asociación Arariwa in Cusco, Peru.
