Maria Antonieta's story

Maria Antonieta was born in Cusco and now lives in Challabamba (a town located in Paucartambo Province, Department of Cusco, Perú). She is 45 years old, married and has four children.

Maria Antonieta is an entrepreneurial, hard working woman. She noticed her family's expenses were increasing and saw the need to start a business. With her husband's help, she started selling cosmetics. Her business started growing to the point where she needed more capital. That was when a group of neighbors invited her to be part of communal bank “Virgen de Chanca.” Today she is asking for a loan in order to purchase more cosmetics such as perfumes, colognes, earrings, creams, lipsticks and others. She is grateful to her loaners and is committed to make her payments on time.
