Señor De Tantanmarca Group's story

Virginia is a member of the community bank Senor de Tantamarca. This bank is located in the community of Yanacona, district of Urubamba, province of Urubamba, and department of Cusco.

Virginia is 51 years old, has five children, and is single. She is engaged in the business of selling "chicha" (a traditional drink made from corn) and vegetables. She sells from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and has been in this business for several years, which is doing very well.

Her dream is to expand her chicha selling business. She is requesting a loan to buy corn to prepare chicha. The members of this group feel grateful for this loan and vow to meet their established payments.
