Valentina's story

Valentina’s a member of the “Las Triunfadoras” (The Victorious Ones) communal bank in Andahuaylillas District in Quispicanchis Province in Cusco, Peru. She’s a very hardworking woman who continues selling food as her main activity and source of income. She also sells vegetables in a stand she has at the local market. She helps her husband who works in construction this way.

On this occasion, Valentina is requesting the loan to buy ingredients like potatoes, eggs and rice among others and also to buy vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, lima beans, peas, potatoes, etc. to sell in the market.

Valentina most of all wants to help her husband who is doing everything he can to save up to buy a cement mixer so that together the two of them can increase income to provide better education for their children.
