A loan of $2,500 helped a member purchase more fruits and vegetables.

Agua Buena Group's story

The members belong to the "Agua Buena" ("Good Water") community bank in the district, province and department of Cusco. One of the members is MatilD.. She is 56 years old, married and has four children. She makes a living buying and selling fruits and vegetables. She travels to other provinces to sell her products, such as to Urubamba, Calca and Ollantaytambo, especially for the Sunday markets. She also sells on the streets of Cusco itself. MatilD. is a very enterprising woman who has a strong desire to make headway. She is requesting the loan to purchase more merchandise for her fruits and vegetable business so she can have more variety to offer her customers. Some other members make a living selling fruits and vegetables like MatilD., while others raise livestock, sell wood or sell hand-woven items. The members feel happy about the loan and promise to make the payments on time.
