Lindsay's story

Lindsay is 26 years old. She is a single mother with a seven-year-old son. She joined the community “Imasumac” bank three years ago after being encouraged by a friend. In the bank she has received support and learned how to run her businesses more efficiently.

Lindsay has three businesses. She sells “caña”, an alcohol made from sugar cane, she sells food staples such as flour, rice and sugar, and in addition she travels nine hours once every two weeks to buy clothing in Lima that she then sells in Ayacucho. Lindsay has been selling food staples and clothing for two years, but only recently started selling caña. She now has three stores where she distributes the alcohol.

Lindsay needs a loan of 2500, soles which she will use to expand her caña business.

One of the most important aspects of the community bank is the interest earning savings account each associate has. Lindsay plans to use her savings to buy a car. Her dream is to eventually have a large grocery distribution center, and to start buying caña directly from the producers in northern Peru.
