A loan of $950 helped to do maintenance on her oven.


Placida's story

Placida is 46 years old, is married and has six children as a result of this relationship. She was born and lives in the town of Oropesa, 30 minutes from the city of Cusco. Her economic activity as a member (of the communal bank) is the making of “Oropesa” bread (a traditionally-made, well-known bread from this town). She has already made a living for many years at this business and it is going well for her.

Placida is an enterprising and hardworking woman who was invited to take part in the communal bank “Virgen Asunta de Oropesa” of the “Asociación Arariwa”. On this occasion Placida requests the loan to do maintenance on her oven.

Placida is grateful for the loan and promises to comply with the payment of her installments according to the schedule of payments.
