The communal bank "El Molinito II" meets monthly in the city of Cusco (Peru). Cusco is known for its tourism and commercial industry, for its traditional festival Inti Raymi, and because it is home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Machupicchu.

Maritza was born in the city of Cusco. She is 25 years old and single. She currently lives in the same city where she was born and where she works. She has a small workshop in her home where she makes jewelry. Occasionally she buys products that are already made so that she is able to supply her customers and stock her shop. She has been running this business for two years and things are going well for her. At the moment Maritza is requesting a loan to buy materials and tools.

Maritza's dream is to open her own handicraft business.
