A loan of $775 helped to purchase artisan crafts for resale.


Faustina's story

Faustina is 40 years old, and lives in Andahuaylillas, in the province of Quispicanchis in the department of Cusco, Peru. She is married and has five children.

Faustina makes a living buying and selling crafts and artisan goods. She sells sweaters, purses, necklaces, earrings, and other items. She displays her products in the main plaza of Andahuaylillas, and through this business she makes a living and works to provide for her children.

Faustina desires to expand and improve her business, and she is therefore requesting this loan in order to purchase artisan crafts in bulk and stock up on merchandise for the next tourist season.

Faustina belongs to the community bank, “Las Triunfadoras” (the triumphant), which is located in the Andahuaylillas district in the province of Quispicanchis and the department of Cusco.
