A loan of $500 helped buy cheese and grains.


Zenaida's story

Zenaida is a member of the "Sol Radiante" (Brilliant Sun) Village Bank. She is married and has four children. She travels to local markets twice per week to buy cheese, grains, and animals, which she then brings back to the city of Ayacucho to sell or sends to the tropical forest with her sister to sell. Zenaida also raises pigs at home.

Zenaida needs a loan of 1500 soles to buy cheese and grains. Zenaida’s dreams are to educate her children so they can graduate with professional degrees and to improve her businesses.
