Kusikoyllor Group's story

Sonia belongs to the “Kusikoyllor” communal bank located in Wanchaq District in Cusco Province and Department. She is 51-year-old and a widow.
She has three children. She alternates her daily activities with a business selling food. She sells it from place to place in the downtown area. She makes dinners like chicken with rice, ‘pollo saltado,’ and soups, among others. She’s been in this business a short time because she used to work raising chickens, a business she left for health reasons. She then started with the food business and she wants to continue to work this way and be able to continue supporting her family. She is asking for the loan to buy ingredients like rice, oil and others for her business. Sonia is grateful for the granted loan and commits to make her payments as scheduled.

The other members are in crafts, construction machinery rental, guinea pig raising, transportation services, sale of woven items and food sales. The person in the inserted photo asked permission to be late the meeting because of work and the little girl dressed in red and black is the daughter of one of the members.
