Carmela's story

Carmela belongs to the Qorichuspa communal bank. She lives in the Huanchac district in the Cusco province, Cusco department.

Carmela continues to work as a confectioner. She decorates cakes with colored characters for different children’s parties when her services are requested. She has had her business for a good amount of time, and thanks to her daily effort, it is going well for her. This is the way that she gets her family ahead.

She requested the loan to buy materials like brushes. She is grateful for the loan that was granted, and she pledges to make her payments.
