Antonia's story

Antonia is 26 years old and has a partner and two children. She is hard-working and enterprising. From a very young age, Antonia has made a living raising young animals such as chickens and guinea pigs, as well as working in agriculture. Antonia has been a member of the "El Balcon" communal bank for some years now and, on this occasion, she is applying for a loan in order to buy chickens and guinea pigs. Antonia was born in the Challabamba district but lives in Majopata in the Carnicero community. (Majopata is in the Challabamba district in the Paucartambo province of the department of Cusco, Peru).
