Petrona's story

Petrona continues to sell typical food (fried chicken, fried trout, chicken with noodles, stuffed peppers, sheep's head soup, adobo (spicy pork), fried chops, huancaína potatoes, huacho lima beans, chiriuchu (a dish made from corn tortilla, chicken, toasted corn, pork sausage, cheese and baked guinea pig), and others. She has had these businesses for several years, and it is going very well for her.

On this occasion Petrona needs the loan to buy supplies (sacks of rice, sacks of sugar, cooking oil, vegetables, and other things) in order to prepare more food dishes.

Petrona is a member of the "Los Girasoles de Rumichaca Baja" communal bank, made up of members who live in the Rumichaca Baja settlement, where they carry on their business activities.
