Virgen Inmaculada Concepcion Group's story

These members are part of the Communal Bank “Virgen Inmaculada Concepcion” which is located in the District and Province of Urubamba, Department of Cusco.

One of the members is Sra. Alejandrina. She is married and 67 years of age. Alejandrina has one business selling animals and another one selling “chicha”, a beverage maD. from corn. She sells animals such as pigs, guinea pigs, and chickens. Once the animals are fattened, she sells them at different fairs throughout Urubamba Province. Alejandrina sells “chicha” as a street vendor. Through her small businesses, she and her husband are able to get ahead. Alejandrina wants to expand and improve both of her businesses, so she is requesting a loan to buy animals (such as pigs, guinea pigs, and chickens) and also corn and maize for making “chicha”.

The other members engage in business activities such as selling fruit, selling vegetables, farming, selling “chicha”, and selling groceries.

Alejandrina would like to thank those responsible for making this part of her dream a reality. She also promises to complete her payments according to the established terms.
