Emilia's story

Emilia was born in Urubamba Province in the community of Racchi. She’s 40 years old, married and has four children.

Currently, Emilia lives in the same community where she was born and where she carries out her various economic activities. She’s a barley, wheat, corn and other products farmer. She sells her dry grains on Saturdays in the Cusco market and on Wednesdays in the Urubamba market; she also raises livestock. On this occasion, Emilia needs the loan to buy cattle.

The “Qorihuayrachina” communal bank meets monthly in the community of Racchi, Urubamba Province, Cusco Department (Perú). Cusco is known for being a very touristy, commercial zone as well as for its traditional “Inty Raymi” festival and also because one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Machupicchu, is located here.
