A loan of $4,900 helped a member to buy potatoes at wholesale.


Munay Soncco Group's story

Mirian, 19, is a member of the “Munay Soncco” communal bank located in Wanchaq District in Cusco Province and Department. She’ single and alternates her daily chores with a business selling potatoes. She travels to Andahuaylillas District to buy her merchandise at wholesale and then be able to resell it in one of the markets in the city of Cusco. At the same time, she’s taking pre-university courses because she wants to enroll at the Universidad Nacional del Cusco in accounting. She strives hard for this and supports herself this way. She requests the loan to buy potatoes at wholesale.

The other group members’ businesses are construction materials, bakery, sand sales, brick sales, grocery store, beauty product sales and Internet access.

The people in the inserted photos are members who asked permission to arrive late at the meeting because of work commitments.

Mirian is grateful for the granted loan and commits to make her installment payments.
