A loan of $550 helped to invest in the purchase of handicrafts.

Gladys Elisa's story

This communal bank is called “Señor de Coylluritti de Ccorao” and it is located in the town of Ccorao – Pisac, which forms part of the Province of Calca and the Department of Cusco.

Gladys is 35 years old, married, and has two children who are 6 and 12 years old. She buys and sells handicrafts, buying them at wholesale in Pisac at the large warehouses and then bringing them to sell in another town called Qorao, where there is little competition. She is requesting the loan to invest in the purchase of handicrafts.

Gladys is grateful and wishes to state that she will be disciplined and make her loan repayments.
