A loan of $2,100 helped a member buy livestock, seeds, and fertilizer.

San Juan De Quihuares Group's story

The members of the Communal Bank “San Juan de Quihuares” are from the Acomayo province, located 3 hours from Cusco.

The members alternate their work between farming and livestock. They farm a variety of products in this area of the country, such as a varieties of potato, corn, wheat, barley, sweet potato, oca (a starchy tuber), and vegetables. Our members need a loan to be able to invest in buying a large number of seeds and fertilizer for their land and to buy some calves to fatten and sell as well as make dairy products from the milk and other small business sales. Here 8 members are dancing for the de Qoylloriti, which is a snow-capped mountain, which historically the Incas have provided homage to for being part of their God, providing them water.

The members are grateful for the loan and they promise to repay it in its entirety within the established timeframe.

In this group: Alejandro, Teofilo Wilber, Juana, Gloria, Segundina, Melchora, Yovana, Ysidora, Baleria, Alvino
