Prosperemos- Cusco Group's story

This member belongs to the “Prosperemos- Cusco” (We Shall Prosper- Cusco) communal bank. The bank is in Huanchac District, in Cusco Province and Cusco Department.

The member is Felicitas; she is 46 years old, married, and has three children. She works in her grocery store. Felicitas has her own business on the ground floor of her house. She lives in San Jerónimo District and is very hardworking. She wants to continue supporting her husband and children at home. This is why she opens her store at 6:00 a.m. and waits for the bread man to bring her fresh bread, arranges the entire store and prepares breakfast for everyone in the house. Since her store is next to the dining room, she does not have to leave to watch the store while also taking care of her children.

Felicitas needs the loan at this time to buy basic groceries like rice, oil, sugar and milk.

In the photo there are two members, Marleni and Roxana, who arrived a few minutes after the meeting began and who had prior permission for the delay.

The other communal bank members do work like providing lodging, restaurant services, national police, handicrafts and clothing sales.

Felicitas is grateful for the support given her, and she promises to make her payments in a disciplined manner.
