Wiñay Huayna Group's story

These individuals belong to the “WIÑAY HUAYNA” cooperative bank, located in the district and province of Cusco.

The member is Rosa, who is 54 years old, single, and has one child. She dedicates herself to selling beverages such as chicha D. quinua, apple juice, and chicha morada (chicha is a traditional Andean beverage, typically derived from maize).

She has a site at the market in Wanchaq, where she works from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. By means of this small business, she helps her son get ahead. She would like to have a snack stand where she could sell the beverages. She is requesting a loan to buy the ingredients for making her refreshments.

The other members dedicate themselves to selling clothing, handicrafts, handbags, and knitted goods, and some have general stores.

She is happy about the loan, and commits to making her payments.
