Agustina's story

Agustina is 57 years old, is married and is the mother of 4 children. She has no education, only having participated in the Reading Program. She lives in Centro Poblado D. Acari, in the district and province of Yunguyo D Puno.

She has been a member of the community bank Banco Comunal "Fe y Alegria" of Centro Poblado D. Acari D Yunguyo for five years. With her first loan of S/.300 she managed to compliment her capital to purchase a cow. Since she was 18 years of age she has been visiting the towns of Tacna e Ilo to work, and when she was 22 years of age she married. Since then she has been dedicating herself to the buying and selling of cows.

With this loan amounting to S/.1,500, which will be repaid in a term of 3 months, she will purchase a cow (costing S/.1400) and with S/.100 she will purchase feed for the herd.

Her dream is to have a larger cow shed and to have a storage facility for the feed.
