Pillao Group's story

The members belong to the Pillao communal bank which is located in the district of Cusco, province of Cusco, department of Cusco.

The member is Mrs. Delfina, she is married and is 53 years old and has 6 children. She has a small grocery store where she sells basic household goods like rice, sugar, milk and cookies. Mrs. Delfina works from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., before she used to work selling chicha (a type of fermented corn drink) in the market. She has had her store for over 5 years and her dream is to have a bigger place to sell her groceries. The member needs the loan to buy rice, sugar, milk, oil and cookies wholesale.

The other members of the communal bank work in carpentry, breeding animals, selling roofing tile, have a small grocery store and sell food.

The member is grateful to those who will help her with her dream come through with this loan and she is committed to meeting all of her payment quotas on time.
