Livia's story

In the community of Papel Pata in the district of Echarate (La Convencion, Cusco, Peru) we met Livia. She tells us that she was born in the city of Echarate and that she is 42 years old. She is a single mother and she has four children, one of whom is independent. The other three are still by her side. Livia currently lives in the community of Pispita, at 50 minutes from the city of Quillabamba and it is where she carries out her economic activities.

Livia has a grocery store and a restaurant in her house. She also prepares foods for the feast days of the district of Echarate. It has already been ten years that she has been in business and it has gone very well thanks to the determination she invests in her business.

She requests a loan to pay for the graduation expenses of her daughter Franchesca. Her dream is to open another restaurant in the city of Quillabamba.
