A loan of $3,950 helped a member to buy ingredients.


Villa Quiquijana Group's story

The members are part of the “VILLA QUIQUIJANA” communal bank. This bank is located in the Urcos district, which is part of the Quispicanchis province and the Cusco department.

Martina is 48 year old, single, and has seven children. She works her food business, selling food and chicha (a fermented corn-based beverage), works from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, and moves her children ahead through this business. She would like to improve her customer service and is asking for this loan in order to buy ingredients for making chicha and for preparing her food; things like rice, meat, and noodles.

The other members run grocery stores, sell ice cream, buy and sell grains, sell snacks, and buy and sell livestock.

[Martina] appreciates those who form part of this dream through this medium and promises to make her payments on schedule.

In this group: Martina, Gloria, Augusta*, Guadalupe, Juliana, Felipa, Leonarda, Alejandrina, Honorata, Jaime*
