Los Dinamicos De San Isidro De Chicon Group's story

These are the members of the “LOS DINAMICOS DE SAN ISIDRO DE CHICON” communal bank, located in the Urubamba district; part of the Urubamba province and Cusco department.

Lidia is 50 years old, married, and has five children. She has a chicha and beer business. Chicha is fermented corn beverage. She also has a small restaurant and has had it for 20 years. Things are going well for her businesses and she gets her children ahead through them. Her dream is to expand her shop so she can sell more beer and chicha, and is asking for a loan to buy more.

The other members sell fruit, animals, have grocery stores, or farm.

[Lidia] is grateful to those who form part of this dream and she promises to make her payments on schedule.

In this group: Lidia, Sergia, Fabiana, Mario Cesar, Julia Alejandrina, Alicia*, Maria, Celia, Dominga, Inocencia, Paulina
