A loan of $550 helped to buy camping equipment.


Ismenia's story

Ismenia belongs to CUSCO community bank which is located in Huanchac district, in Cusco province and department. In common with her fellow bank members, Ismenia is new. The whole bank is new and all its members are very excited as this is the first time that they have organized themselves in this way. They are all requesting a loan so that they can invest in their businesses and improve the quality of the services they provide.

Ismenia owns a travel agency called 'Hiran Bingan'. She would like to invest her loan in buying camping equipment. She rents out and sells hiking equipment, canoeing equipment, horse-riding equipment, etc. She needs this loan to invest in buying camping equipment so that she can stock her travel agency. In addition to offering her services as a tour guide, she also rents out equipment for every occasion.

Ismenia is grateful for the support that she will receive and, for her part, she pledges to make her loan repayments in a disciplined manner.
