Virgen De Fatima De Lamay Group's story

The members belong to the Virgen de Fatima de Lamay communal bank. This bank is located in the district of Lamay, Calca province, and Cusco department.

The member, Marivel, is 40 years old, married, and has 2 children. The member's business is agriculture and selling animals. The member has farmland where she plants corn and potatoes. The member works from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. The member has been in this business for some years now, and it is going very well for her.

The member's dream is to expand the agricultural business. The member asks for the loan to purchase seeds and fertilizers. The member who is attached to the group photo had the photo taken after the meeting because she asked permission due to work reasons.

The members are all grateful for the granted loan and promise to make their established payments.
