Eliana's story

Eliana N. C. lives with her husband and four children (aged, 14, 9, 4, 6 months) in Ayacucho. She is part of the community bank, LLamkasum, "let's work together" in Quechua. Every two weeks Eliana travels to the rainforest to purchase cooca beans, coffee and peanuts; she spends 2 weeks in the selva and then returns to sell the products for 4 days. She plans to invest her loan of 1050 soles into her business by paying rent, purchasing more goods and paying for bus tickets to and from the rainforest. With her savings, she hopes that her business will continue to grow; she'd like to buy a computer and be able to help with her children's education, so they will become professionals.
