Los Comerciantes De Andahuaylillas Group's story

These are the members of the village bank "Los Comerciantes de Andahuaylillas". This bank is located in the district of Andahuaylillas, which is in the province of Quispicanchis in the department of Cusco.

One member, Mrs. Higidia, is 44 years old, separated and has 5 children. She sells food and also raises animals like guinea pigs, chickens and pigs. She sells food in the market of Andahuaylillas, working from 7:00am until 2:00pm. With these small businesses, she helps her children to get ahead. She wants to increase and improve her food sales and animal husbandry businesses. She asks for the loan to buy cooking products and animal feed.

The other members sell milk, run grocery stores, sell chicha [a local beverage], work as electricians and mechanics and sell pasture.

She thanks those who are part of her dream by this means, and promises to comply with the payments in the established time period.
