Señor De Los Temblores De Quello Quello Group's story

This group is called “Señor D. los Temblores D. Quello Quello” and they meet every thirty days in the city of Quello Quello in Pisaq District, Cusco Province. The communal bank is notable for being composed of hardworking artisans and merchants. The group has 11 members and they’ve requested several loans from Asociación Arariwa; they will invest the money in their businesses.

We met Lourdes, 29, at this meeting. She has two children and raises small farm animals, farms and is a craftswoman. Since a young age she stood out as being a responsible, kind person. Because of that her neighbors invited her to participate in the communal bank.

In her free time Lourdes paints ceramics. She does all her jobs at home and does very well thanks to the effort she puts into her work. On this occasion she needs the loan to buy more supplies like paint and paint brushes, for example.
