Señor De Ecce Homo Group's story
Our members belong to the Señor D. Ecce Homo Communal Bank. They live in the city of Cusco in the Cusco department. The members meet every 30 days in the central office of the Arariwa Association. There are 15 members. In the video you can see them at one of their meetings. Some of our members alternate their activities between their diverse household chores and selling handicrafts, meals, food, and clothes. Dominga and Jovita are members who make weavings and embroidery. Other members proviD. services like secretarial, accounting, and teaching. Monica is a member who makes chocolates. Benecia is a 43 year old member. She is a single mother, and she has three children. She makes and sells candles. She gets up very early to do her household chores. Later she goes to sell candles at the doorway of the La Merced Temple of Cusco. She has been in this business for several years. It has gone very well for her thanks to the effort she puts into her work. She needs the loan to buy more supplies to continue making candles. The members need the loan to buy more products like food, materials for handicrafts, clothes, and much more. That way they will be able to increase their business capital, get greater earnings, and give their children a better quality of life. The members value and appreciate the loan given through this medium. They promise to pay it on time.
