Patron De San Jeronimo Ii Group's story

The members all belong to Cusco's “PATRON DE SAN JERONIMO II” communal bank, which is in Huanchac neighborhood, 15 minutes from Cusco's main square. There are 14 members, each with his/her own commercial activity; most of the members are independent businesspersons. For example: one member works as a receptionist in a hostel but also has a small firewood sales business at home. Another member has a small grocery store and requests funding to buy stock items for it. Another member is a mechanic and needs funds to buy tools for his shop. Another member has clay and mud ovens and needs funding to buy raw materials. Another member has a small, corner stand where she sells anticuchos (skewered grilled meats and potatoes). Another is a cheese merchant, one has a bookstore, and another works for the city as a kitchen assitant; another member sells catalogue cosmetics. All of them need funding to invest in their various commercial activites and some to buy products to sell as a source of extra income besides their regular jobs. The members are grateful and send an enormous hug and warm greeting to everyone for the New Year and pledge to repay the loan in a timely fashion.
