Judith's story

This community bank is called “LAS EMPRENDEDORAS DE ANADAHUAYLILLAS” (The Entrepreneurs of Anadahuylillas). It is located in the town of Andahuaylillas, in Quispicanchis province, in Cusco department.

Judith is 32 years old, married, and has one child. She divides her time between her household chores and her business buying and selling handicrafts. She has been selling handicrafts in the main square of Andahuaylillas for more than one year. This is a traditional and beautiful town which is visited by tourists who come from all over the world because of the town's beautiful chapel which is called "The Little Sistine Chapel of Cusco". Judith makes the most of this attraction and, together with her companions, she buys handicrafts in Cusco and sells them in the town square. She would like to invest in buying handicrafts.

Judith is grateful for the loan and would like to make it known that she will make her repayments in a disciplined manner.
