Señor De Ricra Group's story

The communal bank Señor D. Ricra is part of the Wari project. The bank is beginning its 6th cycle with 18 members. The members come from the Vinchos district of Huamanga Province, in the Ayacucho Departament. Their principal activities are agriculture and livestock.

The members have different businesses, such as selling grains, groceries, small animals, fish, and food.

Such is the case of Maria Nieves, who is married with 4 children. Maria has a restaurant in her house, where she works every day. She also has a grain mill, where she mills grain for customers.

On the other hand, Gregoria lives with her significant other, and buys/sells small animals. She buys the animals in different communities and sells them at regional markets.

The members need different loan amounts - such as 300, 400, 800, and 1000 soles - combining for a grand totatl of 13,000 soles. Their loans will be invested in the purchase of cheese, vegetables, rice, sugar, potatoes, and soft drinks. The members' dream are to increase and improve their businesses, and that their children become professionals.
