El Mirador De Cconchaccalla Group's story

A group of neighbors and friends formed the community bank "El Mirador de Cconchaccalla" in the Cconchaccalla community of the district of San Jeronimo in the province and department of Cusco. This community bank is made up of people looking for every opportunity to succeed and through their daily efforts to provide a better future for their children. The main economic activities of the partners are agriculture and livestock, others are engaged in selling food, the sale of vegetables, and the raising of small animals such as guinea pigs, chickens and more.

(Mrs. Nancy is raising her hand in the photograph). The member Nancy was born in the community of Cconchaccalla and lives in the same community where she was born. She is 30 years old and has a common law relationship from which she has three children. Her main economic activity is selling food but she is also dedicated to agriculture and small animal husbandry. She has a small shop in her home where every day she works from 5 am to 9 at night or until the bread runs out. She has been dedicated to this business for several years and it is going very well thanks to the effort she puts into her work. At this time Nancy needs a loan to buy merchandise such as bags of rice, sacks of sugar, noodles, milk and other things.

The group members as a whole appreciate the opportunity offered and agree to comply with the payment of their various fees within the prescribed period.
