A loan of $400 helped to buy beer and soft drinks for her restaurant.

Josefina's story

Josefina runs a bar and restaurant serving fried pork in the Santiago neighborhood of Cusco. She is forty-seven years old and single, and has run this business for over a year now. She is requesting a loan in order to purchase more beer and soft drinks for her restaurant. She says that the high season begins after Mother’s Day, and she wants to be ready for an increase in sales. Her dream is to open up 2-3 other branches of her restaurant.

Josefina is receiving an individual loan as a member of the village bank "Maria Auxiliadora" in Cusco, which is located in the South Andean region of Peru. The bank is in its 10th cycle with Asociación Arariwa.
