Union San Jeronimo Group's story

Antonieta was born in the city of Cuzco, and still lives there. (In the photograph, Antonieta has her hand raised.) Antonieta is thirty-five years old and lives in a common law marriage, from which she has one child. Antonieta is an enterprising and hard-working woman who helps her family to get ahead. In addition to being a homemaker, she also makes handbags. She has four years’ experience making handbags, and thanks to the determination she brings to her work, her business is doing well. She also has a small store where she sells clothes along with her handbags. At this time, Antonieta is soliciting a loan to purchase materials to produce handbags, and also to purchase more clothing to sell. Her dream is to open a poultry store where she can also sell groceries.

The communal bank “Unión San Jeronimo” [Saint Geronimo Union] is made up of ten responsible and hard-working individuals. The majority of its members live in the city of Cuzco, where their economic activities take place. Cuzco is known as a place with lots of tourists, a center of commerce, and for its traditional Inti Raymi celebration. It is also where one of the seven wonders of the world, Machu Picchu, can be found.
