A loan of $375 helped buy ocas (a tuber similar to a potato) at wholesale.


Karen's story

The member belongs to the “WORKING MOTHERS” cooperative bank. The bank is located in the district of Cusco, in the Cusco province.

The member is Karen; she is 20 years old, partnered, and has 1 son. She alternates her daily activities with the business of selling ocas (a tuber similar to a potato). She prepares them in an oven, and sells them in the Cusco city’s market. She works from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm. By means of this business, she helps her family get ahead. She would like to expand her business selling oven-roasted ocas. She requests a loan to buy ocas at wholesale.

She is glad for the opportunity to get a loan, and commits to making her payments on schedule.
