Tesoro Group's story

The Banco Comunal Tesoro (Treasure Communal Bank) began its first cycle with 20 members. This bank was formed with the assistance of another communal bank called the Banco Comunal Llapanchik (Llapanchik means “all of us” in Quechua), which invited family members and acquaintances to form this new communal bank. This is how Yoriko, the daughter of the secretary of Banco Comunal Llapanchik, became a member.


Yoriko is 20 years old and single. She lives with her mother. Her cheerfulness and team spirit caused her to be named president of her communal bank, and Yoriko has promised to make the bank better. Yoriko was already acquainted with Finca’s work because she accompanied her mother to communal bank meetings.


Yoriko, together with her family, is engaged in bread making in a rented oven. She makes breads and cookies that she then distributes with the help of her family to different shops according to their orders. In addition, Yoriko studies at a technical school..


Her loan will be invested in the purchase of flour and sugar. Yoriko dreams of finishing her studies and working at her career, as well as having her own oven.
