A loan of $300 helped to buy guinea pigs and feed for her animals.

Carlota's story

The member belongs to the “Ima Sumac Suncco” communal bank. The bank is located in the province of Cusco and the department of Cusco.

The member is Carlota. She continues with her business of raising small animals such as guinea pigs and chickens. She has had her business for a long time, and it is going well for her thanks to the hard work she puts into it every day. At the same time she continues selling vegetables in one of the markets in Cusco. She wants to keep working so that she can continue supporting her family.

She is requesting the loan to buy guinea pigs and feed for her animals.

She is happy because of the loan and pledges to complete her repayments.
