Nuevo Progreso De Andahuaylillas Group's story

The members belong to the community bank "Nuevo Progreso de Andahuaylillas". This bank is located in the Andahuaylillas district which belongs to the Quispincanchis province and the department of Cusco.

The member is Leonarda. She is 39 years old, has a live-in partner and has seven children. She sells salchipapas (fried potatoes with hot dogs) and also works cleaning from 7:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. She sells salchipapas at the Andahuaylillas market. She also has a small plot of land where she grows corn and then sells it at the different markets. The member wants to expand her business selling salchipapas. She is requesting this loan to buy products such as potatoes and salchipapas.

The other members sell crafts, groceries, fruits, feed and salchipapas.

The member thanks those people that are part of this dream through this medium and she is committed to making her payments in the time established.
