San Antonio Group's story

These members belong to the “SAN ANTONIO” communal bank. The bank is located in the Urubamba district, in the province of Urubamba and department of Cusco. The borrower's name is Sofía; she is married and has two children. She works preparing cakes and pastries, which she does independently, and then she sells them in various stores and cafeterias. She also prepares her products for various events, such as weddings, baptisms and others. She would like to take classes in pastry making, so that she can learn to make additional types of cakes and pastries. She is requesting the loan to buy supplies to prepare cakes, and also to buy some construction materials for her house. The other members work in ranching, carpentry, pastry- and dessert making, restaurant operation and the sale of chicha [a traditional beverage]. The borrower would like to thank those who are making her dream possible in this way, and she is committed to making her payments on time.
