Señor De Huanca De Cusco Group's story

The associate, Damiana, is a member of the “Señor de Huanca de Cusco” communal bank; this bank is located in the district of Wanchaq in the province of Cusco, in the department of Cusco.

Damiana, 61, is married with 1 son. She alternates her daily activities with her business buying and selling blankets. She has had this business for years and it’s going well thanks to her daily determination. She has a locale in the centre of the city where she sells all of her merchandise. She is a charismatic and determined person, and being this way has helped her get her family ahead.

The associate is requesting a loan to buy wholesale blankets.

The other associates have businesses, such as wood sales, cafeteria, fodder sales, furniture sales, carpentry and meat sales.

Damiana is thankful for having access to this loan facilitator and promises to meet her payments.
