A loan of $5,700 helped a member to buy a dairy cow.

San Pedro De Katañiray Group's story

The San Pedro de Katañiray village bank is located in the town of Anta in the Cusco province of the department of Cusco. Julia is married and has 10 children. She is 50 years old. She alternates her daily duties with her livestock business. She makes yogurt and cheese with the milk her cows produce and then sells it to her customers. She has had this business for several years, and it is going well thanks to the hard work she puts into it every day. She is a responsible person with a lot of initiative, which is how she helps her family have a better life. She is requesting this loan so she can buy a dairy cow. The other members sell produce, grow crops, offer taxi services, raise livestock, and raise small barnyard animals. The member pictured in the smaller photograph requested permission to arrive at the meeting late because of his work responsibilities. Julia is grateful to everyone who has been part of this dream and is committed to making her payments on time and in full.
