A loan of $4,150 helped a member to buy corn wholesale.


Qorilazo Group's story

The members belong to the Qorilazo communal bank. The bank is in the Cusco district, province, and department.

Tomasa, age 52, is married and has two children. She works in her business of selling corn in an itinerant manner. She takes the corn to the different places where “chicha” , which is a corn based drink, is sold. She works from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. It is through this work that she gets her children ahead. Her dream is to have a place where she can sell the corn.

She is requesting the loan to buy corn wholesale.

The other members devote themselves to the restaurant business, the business of selling food, the business of raising animals, the business of a grocery store, and the business of selling potatoes.

She is grateful to those who are part of this dream and pledges to repay in a timely fashion.
