Maribel's story

Maribel was born in the Challabamba district and lives in the same area where she was born. (The Challabamba district is located in Paucartambo province in the department of Cusco in Peru). She is 27 years old and lives with her partner with whom she has two children. She is a member of the communal bank "Virgen de Chanca" and is a responsible and enterprising person who sells products made from plastic such as cups, bags, plates etc. She also sells fruits like apples and peaches because there are many of these fruits growing in the Challambamba area. She has been running this business for a year now and it is going very well. She is requesting a loan to buy merchandise, for example apples, to sell. She is grateful to the lenders for this loan and pledges to make punctual repayments.
