Saida's story

Saida is 18 years old and works as a cook in a restaurant. The restaurant serves breakfast, a set lunch menu (typically soup and a main course), and dinner. Saida says that the most popular dish is steak with eggs and fries. She is requesting a loan in order to buy a plot of land where she can build a house. By continuing to support herself, she hopes that she can attend university and become a professional. Saida is a member of the village bank “Los Caminantes de Ocongate,” which is receiving its first loan from Asociación Arariwa. The group members live in a fairly remote rural community several hours outside of Cusco city, located at an altitude of 3,800 meters up in the Andean mountains.
