A loan of $3,300 helped a member buy cattle and smaller animals for livestock businesses.

Pedregal Group's story

The members of the Pedgregal community bank live in the town of Chifla, some 3 1/2 hours from Cusco, in the Peruvian province of Paruro.

The group has 10 members who make a living raising livestock and farming. They buy and sell cattle and smaller animals and keep birds. They buy young animals, then fatten and breed them so that they can sell what the animals produce for a higher return. They also work at farming, spending more or less time at it depending on the time of year. They still work the land in the traditional way, planting maize, various kinds of potatoes, green vegetables, barley, wheat and other products. They need the loan so that they can buy cattle and some smaller animals, along with seeds to sow their fields.

Our members are very grateful for the help that the receive and are committed to repaying the loan within the agreed-upon time.
