Señor De Huanca Group's story

Our members belong to the Señor D. H. Communal Bank; there are 20 members. They live in the city of Cusco in the Cusco department. The members meet every 30 days in the Arariwa Association’s central office. Eusebio is the president of the communal bank, and he is giving Christmas and New Year’s greetings to his colleagues and the Kiva investors.

Some of the members have small businesses. For example; Yeni, Erika, Yanet, Magali, Giovanna, Sandro, Edgard, and Pilar make photocopies in front of the San Antonio Abad National University of Cusco. Andrea and Yaneth have a carpentry shop. Wilbert is a technical engineer and also makes calls and recordings. Flora sells leather, and Yeny is a tour guiD. in the archeological center of Moray.

The members need the loan to increase their business capital by purchasing more products like paper, wood, and many other things.

Margarita is 44 and married. She sells food. “El Burrito Amigable” is the name of her restaurant. She has been in the business for ten years, and it has gone very well for her thanks to the effort she puts into her work. She needs a loan to buy more supplies like meat, vegetables, rice, potatoes, and many other things.

The members appreciate and value the loan, and they promise to pay it on time.

(In the video the president says there are 21 members, but one member withdrew from the bank at the last minute.)

In this group: Yeny, Andrea, Damiana, Margarita, Bacilia, Katy, Erika, Yanet, Yanet, Magaly Kareen, Eusebio, Giovanna, Alejandrina, Sandro, Rosmeri, Carlos Dario, Pilar, Wilbert, Flora Agustina, Jhenny Stephanie
