Santusa's story

Santusa rents an oven and makes different kinds of bread, for which she buys flour, butter and sugar. She sells her bread at Oropesa’s bus stop every day. She puts the bread in a big basket and in packages, then offers it to all buses, cars and, in general, to all who pass through the main bus stop headed to Arequipa and Puno.

Santusa asks for this loan so that she can invest in the purchase of ingredients that she uses to make bread. She is very thankful for the loan and is committed to completing the loan payments in a disciplined way.
