Yayanmarca De Cusipata Group's story

The members of the “Yayanmarca de Cusipata” community bank are from the community of Cusipata, located about 2 hours and 30 minutes from the city of Cusco.

Most of the members alternate between household activities and farming. They raise cattle and sell dry grains that they have grown in their own fields. Other members sell vegetables or food in the main market, and two members have stores. The members are asking for a loan for working capital to invest in their land; they need to buy seeds and fertilizer so they can plant crops.

The members are very grateful for the assistance they receive and commit to making regular repayments on their debt in the timeframe that has been established.

In this group: Paulina, Francisca, Otorino, Sonia, Juan, Holder, Ubaldina, Maria Esperanza, Damiana, Matilde, Alejandrina, Juana, Clara, Nicolasa, Serapio
