Wayna Taucaray Iii Group's story

The members belong to the "WAYNA TAUCARAY" communal bank; this bank is located in the district of Cusco, which belongs to the province of Cusco and the department of Cusco.

One member, Teresa, is 52 years old and is married with 6 children. She works in her business selling ceviche (a dish made from fish with lemon and sweet potato) in the market from 8.00am until 4.00pm. She has been working in this business for 3 years. In her free time, she likes to go out for a walk with her children. Her dream is to have the premises from which to sell her ceviche. She is requesting the loan to buy cooking products such as fish, sweet potatoes, lemons and corn wholesale.

The members who are in the smaller photo had their photo taken after the main group because they asked for permission for work reasons, and the members whose faces are covered no longer belong to the Wayna Taucaray communal bank. The other members have businesses including a bookshop, a hotel, a grocery store, a restaurant and a wine-selling business.

Teresa is grateful to those who form part of her dream through this medium and she promises to meet her repayments within the established time frame.
