Salud Group's story

These individuals belong to the communal bank "Salud." This bank is located in the city of Cusco in the Huanchac district, which is part of the province and department of Cusco.

One member is Catalina, 53, who is divorced and works selling Salchipapas on the corner in front of her house. This is a delicious dish, made from fried potatoes and slices of fried sausages, along with mayonnaise, mustard and other accompaniments. Catalina also sells beauty products from a catalog. She is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of supplies for her salchipapas business to buy at wholesale. She will purchase potatoes, sausages, and other items.

These members alternate their activities, such as teaching and working in the public sector, with the sale of stuffed animals and other items.

Catalina appreciates and values the loan, and is committed to making the payments according to the established schedule.
