Salome's story

Salome is 33 years old and lives in the city of Huambutio. She belongs to the "Virgen del Carmen de Huambutio" communal bank of Asociación Arariwa. It is going very well for her thanks to punctual loan repayments. She works at a public organization, but in her free time she sells food as a street vendor (salchipapas - fried potatoes with hot dog - and pollipapas - fried potatoes with chicken). She also has a small grocery store in her home. This time she needs the loan in order to buy merchandise such as bags of rice and sugar, pasta, and other items. She is thankful for the loan, and she promises to make her loan repayments on schedule.
