Kusikoyllor Group's story

Sra. Hermila is 69 years old, married, and has four children. She works in her business of selling handicrafts. The products she makes, such as dolls and key rings, are distributed to different stores that sell handicrafts in the city of Cusco. Hermila works from 8am to 6pm. Through this business, she is able to help her children move forward. Hermila wants to expand her handicraft business, so she is requesting a loan to buy materials such as wool, fabric, and thread for making key rings and dolls.

The other members engage in businesses such as restaurants, auto repair shops, grocery stores, selling food, and selling beauty products. They all continue with the Communal Bank “Kusikoyllor”. No one has left the group since they have all done well in their different businesses.

Hermila is grateful to everyone who has helped her to fulfill her dream, so she promises to complete her payments according to the established terms.

In this group: Hermila, Valentina, Yeny, Sonia, Irma, Elena*, Rosa, Viky Judith, Jovana, Yosue Carmen
