Adela's story

Adela was born in the village of Mika, but she lives in the village of Sayllapata, thirty minutes away from Paucartambo. (The village of Mika is located in the district of Colquepata, in the province of Paucartambo in the department of Cusco, Peru.) She is 24 years old and married with one son, Hulver, who is three years old. Adela is an enterprising and hardworking woman who makes a living in agriculture, livestock, artisan crafts and raising small animals. She has a small workshop in her home where she makes various types of knitted items, such as sweaters, scarves, and rugs. She sells her artisan crafts in various cities, such as Cusco and Huancarani. Her dream is to export her products to other countries, but she would also like to open a poultry shop. A group of neighbors invited her to participate in the "Intipakareq" communal bank because she is a happy and responsible person. On this occasion, she needs a loan to buy working material, such as alpaca and sheep wool. She is grateful to everyone for this loan and she is committed to paying her installments on time.
