A loan of $2,075 helped a member working capital.


Santiago Apostol Group's story

The members of the communal bank, “SANTIAGO APOSTOL”, are located in the district of Santiago in the province and department of Cusco.

Our members alternate their different activities, from housework to specific tasks. With the sale of handicrafts, three members have their stand in the collective shopping center. The women bring merchandise from Bolivia (clothing, games, and gadgets, among other things). At the same shopping center, other members sell books, others have a kiosk for breakfast food, two members run two restaurants, and two more members sell school supplies. One of our members, Sra. Modesta E., is absent from the group for health reasons. These members are very hardworking people and want to keep moving ahead, and for that they require a loan to be able to reinvest in their different businesses.

Our members both value and thank you for your support by providing a loan through this organization. They are committed to repaying this loan within the established time frame.

In this group: Ana Sofía, Dominga, Maria Luisa, Martha Pilar, Benita, Margoth, Modesta*, Isabel, Felicitas, Eloy, Deisi
