Muyurina Group's story

The communal bank Muyurina begins its 19 cycle with 18 members from the community of Muyurina, located about 20 minutes outsiD. of Ayacucho. Muyurina sits in a small valley and most of its residents work growing vegetables. Raquel is now the president of the communal bank, and during her time with the bank she's learned about values and saving. Raquel is 34 years old, and married with 2 children ages 6 and 8. They live in the home of her inlaws. Raquel's dream is be able to construct their own home, which is why she is saving with the communal bank. Together with her husband, Raquel works cultivating lettuce and cilantro, though they do not have their own land. Their products are then transported to the city of Ayacucho where they are sold wholesale in the market. Raquel also raises animals such as hens and pigs, which she sells in the community. Her loan will be used to purchase fertilizer and seeds.
