A loan of $2,200 helped a member to buy cattle.


San Jose De Chupaca Group's story

The San José D. Chupaca communal bank is in Chupaca, Acoria, in Huancavelica. It’s starting its second cycle with 12 members who are in a variety of commercial and agricultural activities in the region.

Gladys is a member and the president of the communal bank. She’s married and has four sons who are students because they want to become professionals.

Gladys raises cattle. She buys them young and makes them grow strong and robust. She sells them at the livestock markets.

Now that Gladys is a member of Finca she feels more motivated to continue working.

She is asking for a new loan to invest in her business buying more cattle.

Gladys’s dream is that her business be large and profitable and to have a store in her home.

Bertha is a member and treasurer of the communal bank. She’s married and has two daughters who are in school.

Bertha sells groceries in a store she opened 6 years ago when it was the only one in her community. Now, her community even has a market.

Bertha liked the concept of savings and she knows that with Finca she can always count on them. She is happy to be part of a communal bank.

The next loan Bertha receives will be used to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Bertha wants to have the largest, best stocked store in her community.

In this group: Gladys, Bertha, Rebeca, Karina Raida, Leona, Natividad, Dionisia, Virgenia, Marina, Antonia, Jesusa, Andrea
