Paulina's story

Thirty-nine-year-old Paulina has a domestic partner and three children. She was born in the province and department of Cusco and she lives in the beautiful city in which she was born. Paulina is a teacher and she also rents cars. Paulina needs this loan to perform maintenance on her cars.

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.
