Simeona's story

Simeona was born in the city of Quillabamba in La Convención Province, which is in the Peruvian jungle. She is 62 years old, widowed, and has one child.

Simeona moved to the city of Calca at the age of 19 and this is where she conducts all of her financial activities. She is a homemaker and lives off of her husband’s pension. Simeona is taking this opportunity to request a loan to pay for her son Wilfredo’s tuition since he is studying for a professional degree in economics.

The Communal Bank “Milenium III” meets every 30 days in the city of Calca in the Department of Cusco in Peru. Cusco is recognized for being an area for tourism and business. It is also known for the traditional festival of Inti Raymi and for being the home of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu.
