In that time they have learned to be responsible, punctual, and to save. In addition they are now friends with the other associates in their bank.


Juana is 60 years old. She is married and has seven children. One of her daughters has been living in Miami for the last seven years. Juana buys vegetables in the countrysiD. and sells them in Ayacucho. She also has a business washing laundry.


ClotilD. is 25 years old. She lives with her partner and three year old son. ClotilD. is a trained nurse but cannot find work in that field. Currently ClotilD. runs a business typing forms and doing computer design. She has been running this business for the past three years.


Fernandina is 43 years old. She is married and has three children between the ages of 24 and 11. Fernandina sells vegetables. She buys vegetables in bulk in the city of Ayacucho and then sells them around the region. She has been doing this since she was fifteen years old.

One of the most important things about the community bank is the interest earning savings account each associate has. Juana, ClotilD., and Fernandina plan to use their savings to open a stO. in their house, get a passport to travel to Brasil and work as a nurse, and to put a roof on their home. Their dreams are to build a house for their daughter so she will come back from Miami, own a nice home, and to have a big stO. in their home.
