San Cristobal De Aparquilla Group's story

These members belong to the Communal Bank “San Cristobal de Aparquilla”. This bank is located in the District of Anta in Anta Province, Department of Cusco.

One of the members is Sra. Geronima. She is 54 years old, single, and has five children. Geronima works at her business of selling milk. She makes deliveries to different grocery stores. Geronima is a hardworking woman who wants to get ahead in her business. She requested a loan to buy milk in bulk quantity.

The member who appears in the smaller attached photo arrived after the group meeting because she requested permission to be absent for work reasons. Other members of the group engage in selling animals, agriculture, selling groceries, and selling cereals.

Geronima is grateful to those who have helped to fulfill her dream in this manner, so she promises to submit her payments according to the established terms.
