Qory Orcco-Pucyura Group's story

The members belong to the “QORY ORCCO-PUCYURA” Communal Bank. This bank is located in the Pucyura district, belonging to the Anta province, Cusco department.

Sra. Albertina is 56, married, and has 4 children. She sells dried grains such as quinoa, wheat and barley, and she also has a business raising guinea pigs. She sells the guinea pigs and dried grains in a stall in the different markets in the Anta district. Through this business, she is getting her children ahead. She wants to expand her dried grains business and her guinea pig business. She is requesting this loan for the purchase of dried grains such as wheat, barley and quinoa, and for the wholesale purchase of guinea pigs.

The other members sell vegetables, food, garden produce, have a grocery store, or are farmers.

Albertina thanks those who will be part of this dream through this loan, and promises to repay her quotas as established.
