Villa Quiquijana Group's story

Our partners belong to the Villa Quiquijana village bank and live in the Quiquijana distsrict in the Quispicanchis province of Cusco, Peru.

One of the members is Honorata who is 44 years old and a native of Acopata, a city 10 minutes from Quiquijana. She lives with her partner with whom she has 2 small children. For the past 6 years, she has worked as a retail saleswoman selling wool and vegetable dyes in Quiquijana on Sundays and on the holidays of various patron saints. She also belongs to the "Together" program, a program designed to help rural women find opportunities for personal development. She also raises chicken, guinea pigs, and pigs. She and her partner have land where they grow potatoes, corn and beans. She is seeking this loan to buy wool and dye for the wool.

The other group members work primarily in agriculture and raising cattle; others sell dried grain and buy and sell small animals.

They are grateful for the support they will receive through these loans and commit to pay their debts on time.
