Juana's story

Juana is a member of the Ayni II Village Bank. Juana is 65 years old and separated, with two children. She has a store on a centrally located street in the city of Ayacucho where she rents wedding dresses, party dresses and suits. She also has a workshop where she sews clothing in the same location. She has several employees who help her sew. Juana needs a loan of 2500 PEN to buy a variety of fabrics. Juana dreams of buying more sewing machines for her workshop and of traveling to different places to relax.
