Wiñay Huayna Group's story

Señor Manuel was born in Juliaca, a city in the Department of Puno. He currently lives in the city of Cusco. (Señor Manuel has his hand raised in the photo).

Señor Manuel is married and his two children are the product of his happy relationship. He is a hard-working and responsible father who supports his children. He is a representative of a private company and he recruits people to be included in various market networks. When he recruits people he sells them a nutritional product and in turn these people do the same, recruiting other people to incluD. them in the market networks. He has now been participating in this type of business for three years and it is going very well thanks to the effort he puts into his work.

Señor Manuel is a member of the Communal Bank “Wiñay Huayna” and on this occasion he requires a loan to buy educational material to train and recruit people.

The members of the Communal Bank “Wiñay Huayna” meet every thirty days in the city of Cusco. The Communal Bank is maD. up of hard-working and enterprising people who are constantly looking for opportunities to get ahead and to create a better future for their children through their daily efforts. The majority of the members live in the city of Cusco and the economic activities of the other members are, for example, art sales, cosmetic sales and food sales among other activities.

Cusco is an area known for its tourism, commercialism, for the traditional festival of Inti Raymi and also because “Machupicchu”, one of the seven wonders of the world, is found there.
