Señor Justo Juez Group's story

Our members belong to the “ Señor Justo Juez” community bank, and live in the province of Cusco. The community bank is made up of 13 members, the majority of whom have an independent business, but in similar fields. Members’ meetings are held in the local office of the Arariwa Association.

Our members alternate between household duties and the sales of handicrafts, food, cosmetics, building materials, bulk grains, etc. Many have their own sales location, such as a market, restaurant, grocery store, etc. Two members sell products to commercial stores. One member owns a grocery store where she sells rice, sugar, oil, etc. Another member has a small stall where she prepares and sells breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The members are seeking a loan that will be used for working capital. With this they will increase their product lines, generate more sales, and achieve a better quality of life for their families. They value and are grateful for this loan, and promise to complete the payments on schedule.

(One member does not appear in the photograph. He asked the board of directors of the community bank for permission to be excluded because of health reasons.)
