Carmen's story

Carmen is a member of the Banco Comunal Virgen Maria community bank.



Carmen is a widower, she is 40 years old and has 5 children. Carmen sells alcohol and sugar cane liquor (a liquor produced from sugar canes produced in the Cajamarca region). Her store is a rented space and it is located in the central provincial port in the Selva Ayacuchana. Her products are acquired through orders she places with her providers who send their deposit through the community bank. She has been running her business for 4 years.



Carmen requires a loan in the amount of 3000 soles, funds that will be used to purchase more sugar cane.



Carmen's dreams are to provide an education to her children so that they may be better than her, and she wishes to expand and grow her business.
