Los Tres Barrios - Qoricancha Group's story

These associates are part of the “TRES BARRIOS – QORICANCHA” communal bank, located in the Qoricancha district; part of the Chincherosos province, and the Cusco department.

Vilma is married and has four children. She alternates her daily activities between her agricultural and sale of small animals; she buys and sells small animals, such as hogs, Guinea pigs, and corral birds. She does this year round and it’s her principle activity. She also helps her husband with his land and agriculture.

The other associates are primarily dedicated to agriculture and livestock. Like [Vilma], most also raise small animals. Some of them are laborers and masons. Four members of this group are not shown in the photograph because, in the case of Aqilino and Melquiades, they are represented by their wives through powers of attorney.

[Vilma] appreciates those who form part of this dream and she is committed to making her payments on schedule.

In this group: Isabel, Valeriana, Benigna, Alejandrina, Valentina, Ignacio, Vilma, Epifanio, Mario*, Aquilino, Melquiades, Paulina, Rolando*
