San Antonio De Padua Group's story

The member belongs to the community bank San Antonio de Padua. This bank is located in the district of Coya in the province of Calca in the department of Cusco. The member in question is Francisca. She is 60 years old, married, and has 6 children. She combines her daily chores with a business selling beer and chica (a local corn-based drink). She has been doing this for years and this is how she has supported her family. She also works raising animals (guinea pigs). She works in her beer selling business every day. She is a cheerful and responsible person with a lot of will to keep working. She is requesting a loan to buy beer for her business and in this way to have more to offer her customers. The other members work raising guinea pigs, buying and selling products (grains), selling chicha, selling dried grains, and running a grocery store. The members who appear in the accompanying photo asked permission to arrive at the meeting a little late. The member appreciates this access to credit and promises to make the repayments.
