Las Flores De Yanacona Group's story

This are the members of the Banco Comunal “Las Flores de Yanacona” (“Yanacona’s Flowers” Community Bank), which is located in Yanacona, a district in the Urubamba province of the Cusco region.

Nicolasa is one of the members of the bank: she is 42 and has 3 children. She engages in breeding small animals as well as in a grocery store, and she also owns some land where she plants maize, potatoes and peas. She sells her animals and her crops in different fairs taking place in the Izcuchaca district, and in some occasions she also goes to the town of Cusco to sell them. She is requesting a loan to buy products for the grocery store and to buy small animals such as chickens and piglets.

The other members of the group engage in sowing, selling arts and crafts, clothes sale, carpentry, meat and small animals’ sale.
Nicolasa is thankful to those who will help making her dream come true through this loan, and she commits to comply with repaying her dues in the set time.
