Ricardina's story

Ricardina was born in the city of Cusco (Peru) and is 56 years old. She currently lives in the city in which she was born. Her business is selling food as an itinerant street vendor in Huancaro market, in the city of Cusco. She has been in this business for ten years and she is doing very well thanks to the effort that she puts into her work. On this occasion, Ricardina needs a loan to buy supplies such as rice, sugar, noodles, etc. She is a responsible and hard-working person and, because of these personal qualities, her friends invited her to join Asociación Arariwa's “Chaska Ñawi” community bank.
