A loan of $3,875 helped a member to stock her business.


San Isidro Group's story

Katiuska is 30 years old, lives with her partner, and has two school-age children who are still dependent on her. She is a tenacious woman who works to get her family ahead in life. Her current business is hand-making and selling cuddly toys. She sells these products to her friends and neighbors. She sells them for a good price because they are made with good-quality materials. Katiuska is requesting this loan so that she can increase her business and thereby provide her children with a better quality of life. In the future, she would like to be able to own business premises in the center of Huancayo. In the photo, Katiuska is holding her youngest son, wearing a brown and green sweater and gray tracksuit. She is to the left of the member who is wearing a pink-colored sweater.
