A loan of $2,650 helped a member business investment.


Qorimakis Group's story

This group is called "QUORIMAKIS," a Quechua name which means "hands of gold." The group has 11 members who live in the Huanchaq district. They meet once a month at a central site in Cusco de Arariwa, in the district of Huanchaq. Our members are in their third loan phase. They pursue a variety of activities, among which the business of retailing is prevalent. Our members invest their money in four members who work at handicrafts. They transform potter's clay into beautiful decorative products, utensils, and much more. Another small group invests money in the purchase and sale of potatoes and vegetables, restaurant liqueurs, and clothes. One of the members, la Sra. Roxana, has a travel agency and transports tourists. All the members wish to continue to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of their families. They apply for this loan to continue with their businesses and improve the quality of their lives. Our members value and are grateful for the help given through these loans, and they promise to make loan payments on time.

In this group: Carmen Ruth, Sonia Patricia, Dominga, Ines, Roxana, Reyna, Maria Luisa, Alain Dick, Clever Ronald, Soledad, Adriana
