A loan of $1,100 helped invest in her business to raise chickens.


Luisa's story

We met Mrs. Luisa in the town on Kiteni, Quillabamba district, province of La Convención, Cuzco, and she told us:

"I was born in the city of Quillabamba. I am 52 years old and have five children. Now I live in the city of Kiteni and this is where I work selling fruit and raising small animals".

Luisa is a hard-working and enterprising lady who works to help her family get ahead. She heard from some friends about a financial organization that provides micro-loans to invest in businesses and, without giving it another thought, she decided to join the Choclo de Oro de Kiteni (Ketini's Golden Corn) community bank. The Arariwa Association chose to form the community bank because it trusts the members. Luisa asked for a loan to invest in her business raising chickens.
