Cristo Campesino Group's story

The "Cristo Campesino" community bank is located in the village of Huacaytaqui, province of Quispicanchis, department of Cusco, Peru. One of the members is Vicentina, a 40-year-old divorced mother of two children. She runs a small general store, selling primary-need products such as sugar, rice, milk and other items. She also sells notebooks, erasers and all kinds of school supplies. Her store has been in the San Sebastián neighborhood in the city of Cusco for the past six years. Vicentina travels constantly to her native Huacaytaqui and leaves her children in charge of the store when she is away. She is requesting the loan to purchase primary-need products and in this way stock her store. The other members of the community bank make a living in teaching, raising small animals, farming, raising livestock, selling bread, selling candy, providing dry-cleaning and laundry service, and raising animals to fatten and then sell. The members value and are grateful for the loan and promise to make their payments on time.
