Vicentina's story

Vicentina is 37 years old, lives with her partner and has no children. She makes a living selling vegetables and tubercules in Huaypetue, district of Puerto Maldonado province - Perú. Vicentina brings her products to sell them in this region of Perú, because of the growth in population due to the informal mining industry, activity which has come up in this depressed area of the country, and also because her products are highly sought-after because it is a hard-to-reach town. This time Vicentina asks for a loan that will allow her to purchase merchandise and sell it in Huaypetue. She hopes that by working hard in this commercial activity she will be able to finish the construction of her house. Vicentina belongs to “Las Triunfadoras” communal bank of the Andahuaylillas district, province of Quispicanchis Cusco – Perú.
