Los Tres Barrios - Qoricancha Group's story

Our members belong to the "Los Tres Barrios - Qoricancha" Communal Bank, located in the province of Urubamba, District of Chinchero, in the Department of Cusco.

The majority of the bank members work in agriculture and raising cattle, with some working in retail sales as well. Two members work selling chicha [a fermented corn drink], another is a bricklayer, two work as craftsmen and one works making toilets.

One member, Alejandrina Huamán L., who is originally from Chinchero and the Qoricancha community, is married and has two children. She completed a primary school education and has been raising cattle since she was practically a little girl. Now she works buying and selling cattle. She goes to the fair in Quispicanchis province to buy young animals. She then raises and fattens them, breeds and raises their young, and sells the older animals. When she has bulls she also rents them so that they can breed with her neighbors' cows. It is a complex and time-consuming job, and she is asking for this loan in order to buy new calves.

All of our members are thankful for the opportunity offered by the loan process and promise to repay their loans within the established time period.
