Anastacia's story

Anastacia is a member of the “San Juan de Tahuaco” Communal Bank, located in the district of Yunguyo, Yunguyo province, Puno department. She is 52 years old, married, and has 2 children. Anastacia never went to school.

She and her husband buy and sell household animals. Anastacia's first loan was for the sum of 300 new sols, and was invested in her animal sales business. She has worked with the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for 14 years.

Anastacia is requesting a new loan for the sum of 500 new sols, to be used to buy 4 pigs to fatten and sell later in the city of Yunguyo.

Her dream is to have more pigs to improve her earnings.

What she likes best about the Communal Bank are the meetings.
