Zenovia's story

Zenovia still belongs to communal bank Santo Domingo. Meetings are held every month in the district of Cusco of the province of Cusco in the region of Cusco. Zenovia is 53 years old and separated, but has 3 children. She was born in the city of Cusco and still lives there. She still has her food-selling business, which is a tiny restaurant where she prepares and serves dishes she makes, such as chicken stew, stuffed rocoto pepper, and sautéed pork. She works from four in the morning to nine at night. She asks for a loan to buy ingredients such as rice, oil, chicken, meat, and vegetables. Zenovia is happy to benefit from this loan and promises to honour the repayment schedule.
