A loan of $1,600 helped a member to purchase chickens and guinea pigs.

Sayhua Group's story

The members belong to the community bank "Sayhua". This bank is located in the Urubamba district belonging to the Urubamba province and department of Cuzco.

Mrs. Maricel is a member, lives with her spouse, is 32 years old and has one child. She works in her business of raising animals, she raises chickens and guinea pigs, gets them to grow and fatten up and then sells them at the various fairs. The member works from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm and through this business gets her child ahead. She wants to enlarge and improve her business of raising animals. She is requesting this loan to buy chickens and guinea pigs.

The member photos that are attached to the group picture were taken later since the members were excused because of work commitments.
The other members have a room rental business, a grocery store, food sales business and animal raising business.

The member thanks all that are part of this dream and promises to make her payments in the established time period.
