Sr. De Huanca De Coya Group's story

A group of neighbors and friends formed the community bank "Sr. de Huanca de Coya", in the district of Coya, Calca province, in the administrative division of Cusco. This communal bank is made up of people who are constantly looking for opportunities to succeed, and through their daily efforts they will provide a better future for their children. The bank is organized as follows - Graciela is the president, Mario is the secretary, Rosa is the treasurer and Cristina is the attorney. Some of the members have businesses such as selling crafts, small animal husbandry, buying and selling cattle, raising cattle and selling food, while others provide shuttle services, or work as bricklayers and civil servants. Graciela is 46 years old, married, and has three children as a result of this union. Graciela is in the food business and has a small restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and various regional dishes. She has had her business for 15 years and is doing very well thanks to the effort she puts into it. This time, Graciela requires a loan for the maintenance of her premises and to repair the doors and tables. The members appreciate the opportunity offered to them, and pledge to comply with the payment of their dues within the prescribed period. Cusco is located in the district and province of Cusco, Cusco department, in the heart of the ancient city of the Incas. It is known as a tourist area due to its archaeological sites in the historic center, for its landscapes and for being a lovely city in the Southern Region of the country.
