Maria's story

Maria was born in the city of Quillabamba but currently lives in the city of Cusco. She is 47 years old and has a common-law relationship, from which she has two children.
She works in food sales and has a small restaurant that offers typical regional dishes as well as offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. She is a member of the communal bank "New Lord of Huanca" [Señor de Huanca - Nueva] in the Arariwa Association in the city of Cusco.
For this opportunity, she needs a loan to buy supplies such as bags of rice, bags of sugar, pasta, meat, vegetables and other items. She has dedicated six years to this business and it is going very well.
