Leonarda's story

Leonarda is a member of the "New Hope of Ollantaytambo" communal bank. The members meet every thirty days in the city of Ollantaytambo in the province of Urubamba.

Leonarda is 37 years old and lives with her partner, with whom she has three children. She was born in the city of Urcos, and she lives in the city of Ollantaytambo, where she works. Leonarda's main work is selling food in the market. She has already been doing this for 12 years, and it is going very well for her, thanks to the effort she puts into her job.

This time Leonarda needs the loan to purchase more supplies, for example, bags of rice and sugar and bottles of oil.

Leonarda is grateful for and values the loan, and she promises to make her monthly payments on time.
