Santa Rosa De Lima De Conchacalla Group's story

The members pictured above belong to the community bank, “Santa Rosa de Lima de Conchacalla.” The bank is located in the Anta district, which is located in the province of Anta, in the department of Cusco.

Juana is a member of the group, is 52 years old, and has two children. She makes a living raising and selling animals, such as guinea pigs and chickens. She raises the animals and fattens them up for eventual resale in various markets and fairs in her area. She begins work at 8:00 AM and works until 6:00 PM. Through her work in this business, she has been able to help provide for her children.

Her dream is to grow her operation and eventually own a fixed location for a store from which she can sell her animals. She is requesting this loan in order to purchase guinea pigs and chickens in bulk. Juana is grateful to those people who help fulfill her loan and take part in making her dreams a reality. She has promised to make all her scheduled payments on time.

The members who appear in the smaller photo at the bottom right were unable to be present when the main photo was taken, since they had to be at work.

The other members in the group make a living in agriculture, bread making, guinea pig sales, and food sales.

In this group: Juana , Valentina Faustina, Ricardina , Bernardina*, Margarita , Toribia , Norma , Julia , Biviana , Vicentina , Nelly, Angelica*
