This member belongs to the Urpis de Confraternidad community bank which is located in Wanchaq district, in Cusco province, in Cusco department.

Damiana is 65 years old, widowed, and has three children. She splits her time between her daily activities and her hardware business where she sells paints, cement, different types of nails, pipes, keys, lightbulbs etc. She has been in this business for years and things are going well thanks to the daily effort that she puts in.
