Señor De Huanca De Cusco Group's story

The “Señor D. H. D. Cusco” community bank has been around for three years. It is maD. up of hard-working and entrepreneurial people who are always looking for opportunities to get ahead and, through their daily efforts, they work to proviD. a better future for their children. The bank meets every month in the city of Cucso (Peru).

During this meeting, we meet Margarita who lives in the beautiful city of Cusco and has five children. She is a housewife and a mother who is noted for being responsible, kind and hard working. Because of these qualities, her friends invited her to become a member of their community bank.

Margarita was born in the city of Cusco, in Cusco department. She tells us that, since she was young, she worked washing clothes. She did this work by hand and she washed the kits of the players from Cusco's soccer team "Cienciano". However, Margarita know how to save and, with the little capital that she had, she opened a restaurant which she called 'El Burrito Amigable' (The Friendly Donkey). She has owned her small restaurant for 12 years now and it is doing very well thanks to the effort that she puts into her business.

On this occasion, Margarita needs a loan to buy more supplies such as rice, noodles and sugar. She is 67 years old and a person who has a great desire to improve herself and have a successful business so that she can proviD. her family with the best.
