A loan of $575 helped to buy work material such as alpaca and sheep wool.


Maria's story

Maria was born in the community of Cotañi and lives in the same community she was born in. (The community of Cotañi is located in the Huancarani administrative division in the Paucartambo province of the region of Cusco, Peru). She is 35 years old, married, and has seven children.

Maria is a hard-working, entrepreneurial woman who makes a living doing crafts. She has a small workshop in her home where she weaves products such as sweaters, scarves, and other things but she also works to produce looms.

A group of neighbors invited her to participate in the communal bank “Intipakareq” because she is a very responsible and friendly person. At this time, she requires a loan in order to buy work materials such as alpaca and sheep wool. She is grateful to everyone for the loan, and is committed to making her payments punctually.
