Virgen De La O Group's story

These people are members of the Virgen de la O Community Bank located in Yucay District, Urubamba Province in the department of Cusco.

56-year old Higidia is married and has six children. She earns her living by selling sweetcorn in Juliaca. She also sells livestock in various markets around the district. Her dream is to expand her livestock and sweetcorn businesses so she is seeking a loan to buy more maize and also feed for her animals.

The other members have businesses such as selling shoes, vegetables, livestock, maize, construction materials, and one has a grocery store.

Higidia is grateful to those who are helping her to achieve her dream and promises to make the loan repayments according to the schedule.
