Clara's story

Introducing Clara, a member of “CUSI COYLLOR DE CHINCHERO”, a Communal Bank located in Chinchero, a district of the Urubamba province in the Cusco department.
Clara is 38 years old, she is married and she has 3 children. She alternates her daily chores with her waiving activity, creating knitted fabrics such as sweaters, scarves, gloves and blankets among other products. She has been engaged in this activity for a good while already; and at times she also breeds small animals such as “cuyes” (“cuy” is Quechua for Guinea pig) and hens to then sell them to customers that require them, such as the restaurants. She is a responsible person with a strong will to succeed and to provide for her family.

She is requesting a loan to buy supplies such as wool to prepare her fabrics.

She commits to complying with her repayments.
