Dos De Mayo Group's story

Our members make up the “DOS DE MAYO” (May 2) communal bank. They live in Cusco’s Huanchac district and meet monthly in Arariwa’s offices. Our featured member is Martha, 43. She is a single mother of two children. She alternates her household chores with retail: she sells nutritional products. She is asking for funds to pay travel costs to buy nutritional products to stock her business. The other members alternate their activities with retail. Some sell cell phones and accessories, another member is a heavy machinery operator, one has a grocery store and another member sells books and newspapers in a kiosk; two other members are photographers and one sells clothing. All the members seek funding to invest in their various businesses. The members are grateful for and value the support given them through this means and pledge to repay in a timely fashion.
