Hamillah Joshelith's story

Joshelith was born in the city of Cusco, in the department of Cusco (in Peru), and she's 23 years old. Currently, she lives together with her two children in the same city where she was born, and this is where she works. She works selling everyday staples. She doesn't have her own location, but she rents a location where she can make her sales of, for example, rice, noodles, sugar, oil, bottles of milk, jars of jam, bottles of water, and many other things.

Currently Joshelith is requesting a loan to buy merchandise, such as bottles of milk, bags of rice, bags of sugar and many other things.

The Communal Bank "Virgen de Chapi" meets monthly in the city of Cusco (in Peru). Cusco is known for being an area with a lot of tourism and business, for its traditional festival of Inti Raymi, and because it's the location of Machu Picchu, one of the seven wonders of the world.
