Norma M. has eight children. She went into business selling hot drinks. Now she sells clothing, food and fruit depending on the season. Before, she could not count on having business capital because she used all of her earnings to feed her children. Her husband drives a tractor that he rents to institutions. Now Norma can save for the education of her children who are in college.

Soledad S. is married. Her business is selling CDs and DVDs. She is thankful for the communal bank meetings because she has learned a lot. She wants to invest her loan in the purchase of plastics because she has seen that there aren't any in the Huando community.
