Anacleta's story

This borrower belongs to the "Virgen del Carmen de Yuncaypata" communal bank. This charming group is located 30 minutes from the city of Cusco, in a village called Yuncaypata. It is a typical village where they have preserved the pure Andean heritage and live together as a community, supporting one another during the planting and harvest seasons and caring for their children and animals together. It is a lovely, Quechua-speaking village located in the department of Cusco.

This borrower is Ms. Anacleta. She is 48 years old, married, and has three children, ages 21, 19 and 18 years old. She works in agriculture and raises young animals. She raises sheep and chickens. She also has a tiny store where she sells a few products like sodas, rice, sugar, cookies, oil, and just a few other things. She sells her young animals at the market on Saturday mornings.

She would like a loan to buy products for her small store. She buys retail products and then travels with them to her community. She is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of products for her store.

Anacleta is grateful for and values the loan she is being offered here. She promises to be disciplined in her repayments, just as she has been with her previous loans.
