Qorilazo Group's story

These members belong to the Qorilazo communal bank. This bank is located in the district of Cusco, which is part of the province and department of Cusco.

One of the members is Señora Yeni. She is 27 years old, is in a common-law marriage, and has two children. Her business is a grocery store. She sells rice, sugar, milk, oil and candies. She works from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm. She also sells corn cooked with cheese, which she sells as a street vendor. Through these little businesses she is raising her children. Her dream is to have a shop where she can sell corn with cheese and also to expand her grocery store. She is applying for the loan to buy products such as rice, sugar, milk, and oil wholesale, and also to buy corn and cheese wholesale.

The other members' businesses include selling chicha (a traditional Andean corn-based alcoholic drink), a chicken business, a grocery store, selling food, and selling guinea pigs.

Sra. Yeni is thankful to those who form part of her dream through the loans and she promises to make her payments according to the established schedule.
