A loan of $3,750 helped a member to buy eggs, potatoes and snacks.

Juntos Para El Progreso Group's story

The member belongs to the “Juntos para el Progreso” (Together for Progress) communal bank located in Huanchac District, Cusco Province and Department.

The member is María, 62. She has a spouse and four children who are already living independently. She works selling cooked eggs with cooked potatoes and hot chili. In the afternoons she’s also a snack vendor in the Centenario Square; she’s been in this business for 20 years. During the morning, she takes her cooked eggs and cooked potatoes in her little basket as well as her snack cart. She is a retailer so she doesn’t need to buy a larger cart or anything like that. She equipped a box to display her snacks along one of the square’s streets.

On this occasion, she needs a loan to buy snacks to increase her stock and to buy potatoes and more eggs for the coming weeks. She is asking for the loan to buy eggs, potatoes and snacks to increase business and improve profits.

She is grateful for the support she’ll get and commits to make her installment payments in a disciplined manner.
