Vallecito Group's story

Our members belong to the “Vallecito” communal bank. They live in the Huanchac district, in the Cusco province, in the department of Cuzco.

Our member is Lidia. She is 37 years old. She lives with her partner in the San Sebastián district. She alternates her domestic activities with retail. She helps her partner with carpentry. She puts the finishing touches on the different items of furniture and together they are a team. Lidia needs the loan to buy a planer, a circular saw, and a wire brush.

Our members alternate their various activities with retail, mostly in services such as renting cell phones for individual calls, carpentry, costume jewelry, taxi rides, bread store, grocery store, book store, and school transportation. Our members are requesting the loan to reinvest in their different businesses.

The members are grateful for and appreciate the support provided through this program and they promise to repay their loans in the established time frame.
