San Martin De Umanes Group's story

Our partners belong to the communal bank "San Martin de Umanes". They live in the city of Cusco, in the Iscuchaka district, Anta province, and department of Cusco.

One of the partners, Gregoria, is 53 years old, a live-in partner, and has one son. She alternates between her domestic chores and retail trade, buying and selling agricultural products. Her husband is a farmer, and they plant potatoes, corn, vegetables, wheat, and barley. Also, Gregoria has livestock, such as cows, chickens, and pigs. Occasionally, she sells her products in Quillabamba, where they primarily produce fruits, and her products are very profitable here. She is requesting this loan to travel and take her products to the province of Quillabamba.

The other partners carry out various activities in retail trade, such as selling handicrafts, livestock, maize liquor, and agricultural products. They are requesting this loan to reinvest in their different businesses. They are grateful for and value the support provided to them through this medium, and they are committed to repaying their debts in the established time frame.
