Marcelina's story

Sra. Marcelina is a member of the Communal Bank “Santo Domingo” which is located in the District, Province, and Department of Cusco.

She is 51 years old, married, and has six children. Marcelina divides her time between her daily activities and her cafeteria business. As the owner, she manages her business between the hours of 7am and 10pm. She serves sandwiches, sodas, beer, and dinner items. Through her business, she is able to help her children get ahead. Marcelina wants to expand and improve her cafeteria business, so she is requesting a loan to buy sodas, beer, and products for cooking such as rice, meat, chicken, and vegetables.

Marcelina is happy with the loan and promises to complete her payments.
