Eufrasia's story

Eufrasia is 42-years-old, is married, has 2 young children, and studied through her fifth year of primary school. She lives in the Chinchaya area in the district of Juli, in the province of Chuchito, in the department of Puno. She has been a member of the "Niño San Salvador" communal bank for 5 years. She started with a loan of 300 nuevos soles and increased her capital to purchase meat at the Juli market. At 15 years of age, she started to work selling soft drinks in the market. She didn't continue her education because she has a lot of siblings, and her parents didn't have enough money to give them an education. After 25 years, she switched businesses, and currently she sells meat. With this loan of 1,000 nuevos soles, which will be repaid in 4 months, she will purchase 6 lambs at 120 nuevos soles each. Her biggest dream is to start a large general store.
