Señor De Huanca Group's story

Aydee was born in the city of Cusco and lives in the same city where she was born. (In the photograph, Aydee is raising her hand.) This is the second time we are visiting the community bank and are finding the same people but they invited another person so what was 12 people is now 13 members. The majority of the members continue to dedicate themselves to the same businesses, for example, selling young animals like guinea pigs, selling food, selling groceries, selling weaving and selling honey. For many years the members have requested loans from Arariwa Association and it has been going well thanks to the punctual payments that the members make. At this time, we return to interview Aydee who is dedicated to providing laundry services but additionally now she is dedicated to selling clothing. Aydee needs, at this time, the loan to maintain the washing machines and to buy materials for her work like detergents, bleach, perfumes, and other items. The majority of the members live in the city of Cusco where they perform their jobs. Cusco is known for being a very touristy and commercial area, for its traditional festivity, Inti Raymi, and because you can find one of the seven wonders of the world, Machupicchu.
