Rosmery Mirtha's story

Mirtha is 25 years old and is separated from her husband. She was born in the city of Cusco, but she currently lives in the province of Urubamba for work reasons.

Mirtha now works in tourism; she is a hotel receptionist in a hotel in her zone, and she's also been a tour guide for the past year. Her dream is to continue working hard so that she can open an internet kiosk business very shortly. She needs a loan to begin buying her computers one by one, at the same time as she studies accounting, which will help her greatly in her business activities.

Her tenacity and drive led her to start a business buying and selling corn, an activity which she does concurrently with her work at the hotel to pay for her advanced studies and she is trying to start a new relationship, get married, and have her own family. This is really an example of struggle and perseverance.
