Dora's story

Dora is a member of the Gratitud Village Bank. She is an Ecuadoran and has lived five years in the city of Ayacucho due to her husband´s work. Dora is a forty-five-year-old mother of two children. She embroiders decorative articles, such as coverings for native artifacts, which she sells to her friends and acquaintances. She also has many side businesses: she makes cakes and snacks to order, a skill she learned studying at Centro Ocupacional (the Occupation Center); she provides decoration services for children's parties; she sells natural products by catalog, and she has just started a new business of renting out dresses.

Dora is seeking a loan of 2600 Peruvian Nuevos Soles to invest in different dresses and an industrial oven.

Dora's dream is to have her own home in Ayacucho because she wants to remain living in the city, to expand her business and to run a company that organizes events.
