Jesús's story

Jesús is a member of the Awakening Communal Bank. Jesús is 67 years old, a widow, and has 8 children. She lives with one of her children and sells firewood from her home. She hires laborers to chop trees into firewood in Cejelambras and then transports it to the city of Ayacucho in a rented car. Sometimes she also sells clothing in some markets. Jesús needs a loan of 2,000 soles ($650), which will be invested in the purchase of eucalyptus trees. Jesús dreams of having her own home and improving her business.
