Los Perseverantes Group's story

These are the members of the communal bank "Los Perseverantes." This bank is located in the Cusco district, in the province and department of Cusco.

The member Santusa is 50 years old, married, and has 3 children. She has a business selling cheese and yogurt. She prepares the cheese and yogurt, and later takes it to sell on the streets. She works from 8am until 6pm, and through this small business she provides for her children. Santusa's dream is to have her own store where she could sell the cheese and yogurt. She is requesting a loan to buy supplies to make the cheese and yogurt, such as milk, salt, sugar and cups.

The members in the small attached photo requested permission to miss the group photo due to work obligations.

The other members of this group have businesses selling bread, selling curtains, selling cakes, and selling internet services.

Santusa thanks those who are helping her to pursue her dream through these means, and she promises to make her payments according to the established schedule.

In this group: Santusa, Celia, Guillermina, Alejandrina, Jessica, Felix Fernando, Catalina, Yeni, Roberto, Bryam Javier*
