Julia's story

This member belongs to the communal bank VIRGEN DEL CARMEN DE YUNCAYPATA. This is a friendly communal bank that is located 30 minutes from the city of Cusco in the village called Yuncaypata. This is a typical little village in that it retains its pure Andean heritage, and they live together in a supporting community, planting and harvesting, caring for their children and their animals, in a very pretty town where they speak Quechua, and in the department of Cusco.

Our member, Julia, is 39 years of age, married and has 4 children who are 17, 15, 12 and 7 years old. She works in agriculture and breeding little animals such as guinea pigs, and sheep, and cows. She specializes in guinea pigs. She has had this business for 6 years, and it is going well. Other than the agriculture and selling of other animals, she has more than 80 guinea pigs that already have a buyer. With the money from the loan she wants to buy animal feed and more guinea pigs. She is asking for a loan to invest in the purchase of small animals to breed and sell. She is happy and grateful for the loan from the communal bank and promises to make her payments on time as she has done in the past.
