Madeleyne's story

Madeleyne is 38 years old and she has a domestic partnership that has produced two children. She was born in the province and department of Cusco and she lives in the beautiful city in which she was born. Madeleyne works selling tickets at a travel agency in one of Cusco's train stations. Madeleyne needs this loan for personal use, such as the education and nourishment of her children.

The Nueva Esperanza Communal Bank is made up of responsible and hardworking people who get their families ahead. Most of its members live and work in the city of Cusco. Cusco is known for being a big tourist attraction, for its business, for its traditional Inti Raymi celebration, and because it is the location of one of the seven wonders of the world, Machu Picchu.
