Nancy's story

Nancy is 31 years old and she completed high school. She is married common law and she is the mother of a little 4-year old boy. She lives in the area called 25 de diciembre (meaning December 25) in the District of Conduiri in the province of El Collao in Puno.

Given the lack of capital she decided to become a member of the Community Baqnk "Maria Parado de Bellido" in Conduiri. At the age of 23 she got married and at the age of 25 she started her business selling clothing (jackets, aprons, skirts, etc.), selling her products in Conduiri. She also buys and sells alpaca and beef meats. She purchases in Conduiri and she sells in the city of Tacna. On a weekly basis she takes 10 to 12 animals, and since about 2 months ago she got into the fuel business.

With this loan, amounting to S/.1000 and which will be repaid in a term of 3 months, she will purchase 3 animals at S/.120 and S/.150 each one, depending on their quality and weight.

Her goal is to increase the capital for her new job so that her son can go to school. Nancy said " Since I became a member of the Community Bank I have learned to be a success."
