Vallecito Group's story

Sra. Vilma is a member of the Communal Bank “Vallecito” which is located in the District of Huanchac, Province and Department of Cusco.

She is 34 years old, in a common law marriage, and has two children. Vilma earns her living by producing trinkets by hand and selling them. She has been selling all kinds of trinkets for four years. Her work involves making necklaces, earrings of quartz and stones, and colorful bracelets with bright finishes and ornate decorations. Vilma needs a loan to buy materials for making her creations such as thread, wire, beads, stones, hooks, miniature chains, and other supplies. Therefore, she is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of these materials for her work so that she can continue to grow her business.

The other members of the Communal Bank engage in selling homemade meals, school tranportation, masonry, providing taxi services, carpentry, selling groceries, and operating a bazaar and bookstore.

Sra. Vilma is extremely grateful for the loan and promises to complete her payments in a disciplined manner.
