A loan of $1,125 helped to buy wholesale products like chicken and potatoes to use when cooking.


Virginia's story

Virginia belongs to the TINKA communal bank, which is in the Cusco district, Cusco province, Cusco department.

Virginia is 36 years old, in a common-law marriage, and has two children. She alternates her daily activities with her business of selling broasted chicken with potatoes. She works from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. It is through this business that she gets her children ahead.

Her dream is to expand the locale where she sells broasted chicken.

She is happy about the loan, and she pledges to make her payments on time.
