A loan of $350 helped she will buy second-hand articles and hardware.

María's story

Señora María is a member of the community bank "Mujeres de Villa Del Lago II" of the district, province, and department of Puno. She is 45 years of age, married, and mother of four grown children.

With the first loan of 500 Soles, she bought second-hand articles and hardware to sell in her work. She has almost two years experience working with the community bank and tells us that she has increased her capacity to purchase second-hand goods.

With this loan of 1000 Soles, which will be repaid in four months, she will buy a greater quantity of second-hand articles and hardware to increase her income.

Maria wants to continue working to purchase a house and a car and to increase the sales in her business.
