Kana De Yanaoca Group's story
The members belong to the community bank Kana de Yanaoca, which is located in the Yanaoca district in the province of Sicuani and department of Cusco. Asunción is 45 years old and single. She works at her business selling fruits and vegetables. She sells apples, oranges, grapes, plantains, clementines, carrots, tomatoes, and peppers. She has a market stall where she sells her wares. She works from 8:00am until 5:00pm. She has had this business for seven years and it is going very well. Asunción's dream is to have a store where she can sell her fruits and vegetables. She is requesting this loan to purchase oranges, plantains, grapes, onions, carrots, and peppers. The group member whose photo is attached separately had their picture taken later because they missed the group photo for work reasons. The other group members work selling animals, selling cattle, at a grocery store, and selling food. Asunción is grateful to everyone who is a part of this dream, and promises to make her repayments according to the established schedule.
