Las Flores De Yanacona Group's story

Sra. Yaneth belongs to the Communal Bank “Las Flores de Yanacona” (The Flowers of Yanacona) which is in the District of Huanchac, Province and Department of Cusco.

She is 22 years old, in a common law marriage, and has two children. Yaneth works at the bus station in Urubamba as a traffic controller. She is responsible for directing buses and vans that come from and leave for different points within the Sacred Valley. Yaneth also raises small animals such as guinea pigs and poultry. She controls the flow of traffic by determining when different vehicles can enter and exit. Yaneth is also responsible for looking after her children while her husband works in Machupicchu in the housekeeping department for a local hotel. She and her husband are able to get together on his day off. They work together to provide their children all the best, which includes a good education and food to eat. Yaneth is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of more animals so that she can increase her sales and help with the family finances.

The other members sell vegetables, sell “chicha” (a type of beverage) made of white and yellow corn, raise animals, grow crops, and work as employees for different private establishments such as boarding houses.

Yaneth values her loan and promises to complete her payments on time.
