Los Tres Barrios - Qoricancha Group's story

The partners of the community bank “Los Tres Barrios – Qoricancha” consist of 13 members who live in the community of Qoricancha, which is located in the district of Chincheros in the Urubama province. With its beautiful landscapes and two impressive lagoons, Urubama is located an hour and 15 minutes from the city of Cusco.

Our partners own vast farmlands and are very hard working and resourceful. Their main business is cattle raising and their secondary business is agriculture. In the months when they are not working the fields, sowing and harvesting, they buy and store food for future sale. Every three months they exchange products with other communities that come to Qoricacha. Many of our partners sell their agricultural products throughout the country while some partners sell their calves and dairy products. They’re always doing something productive and trying to get ahead in spite of the harsh climate and other challenges. The partners are requesting the loan to continue to reinvest in their businesses.

Our partners are very appreciative and value this loan. In the community of Qoricancha, it is their only financial support.
