Maria Rosario's story

Maria Rosario belongs to the communal bank "Ricchary Cusco." This bank is located in the district, province and department of Cusco.

Maria Rosario is a single parent with two children; she alternates her daily activities with her business selling shoes, clothing, and toys. She is also an elementary school educator. She brings clothing and toys from the cities of Tacna, Desaguadero, Puno and Lima. She sells her products according to the season, for example, during the Christmas season she sells toys, and during the rest of the year she sells clothing and other items.

She is requesting a loan to buy clothing such as: blouses, jackets, polo shirts and other items. Her dream is to open a store where she could sell clothing and toys.

Maria Rosario thanks those who are making it possible for her to achieve her dream through these means, and she promises to make her payments according to the established schedule.
