Maria Del Socorro's story

Maria is 58 years old and divides her time between a number of economic activities. She primarily runs a catering service from her house in which she prepares boxed lunches, meals and refreshments for events or institutional orders. For example, clients may request her service for a wedding, baptism, or party. Additionally, she spends some of her time working as an independent assessor for a cancer insurance provider, among other things. Maria has three children who are living independently and she is separated from her husband. As such, she has lately been very focused on her business endeavors.

Maria is requesting a loan in order to renew her kitchen equipment. The loan will help her purchase a blender, plates, and a new refrigerator. Maria’s dream is to open a large food preparation center outside of her house, but for this she needs more capital. Through the help of Arariwa, little by little, she is working her way toward fulfilling this ambition.

Maria is a member of the village bank "El Amanecer" in Cusco, which is receiving its 22nd loan from Asociación Arariwa.
