A loan of $900 helped to buy ingredients to cook.

Yovana's story

Yovana, 32, belongs to the “San Valentín” communal bank which is located in Cusco District belonging to Cusco Province and Cusco Department. She has a spouse and two children. She alternates her daily activities with running a ‘picantería’ (it’s like a restaurant but smaller and traditional). She prepares traditional dishes like roasted chicken, roasted guinea pig and noodles. She works from 9am until 6pm and supports her children by means of this business. Her dream is to expand the picantería. She requests the loan to buy ingredients to cook like rice, vegetables, chicken and meat at wholesale. She’s happy with the loan and commits to make her installment payments.
