Sebastiana's story

Sebastiana was born in the Challambamba district and lives in the same area in which she was born, (Challambamba is located in the Paucartambo province in the department of Cusco in Peru.) She is 30 years old and lives with her partner and their three children. She is a member of the "Virgen de Chalca" communal bank. She is a responsible and enterprising person and works selling fruit, livestock, and does agricultural work. She sells the most popular fruits that grow in abundance in the area. These are apples and peaches. She has been doing this for a year and it is going well. She is requesting a loan to buy fruits such as apples. She is grateful to the lenders for the loan and pledges to make punctual repayments.
