Esther's story

Esther is a member of the Palmeras (“Palm Trees”) Village Bank. Esther is 38 years old and married with two children. She has a stand in the April 12 Market, where she sells grains. She buys the grains in markets, and sometimes buys them from the producers themselves. She also has a car, which she rents out to a driver, who uses it as a shared taxi between Ayacucho and Socos.

Esther needs a loan of 1000 soles to buy wheat, barley and broad beans. Esther’s dreams are to build a house and to increase the chances that her daughter can have a more opportunity-filled life than her own.
