Juntos Podemos Group's story

Jesusa is 44 years old and is married. She and her husband have four children. She is a native of the province of Cusco in the department of Cusco and lives in the same province where she was born. (She is raising her hand in the photograph.)

She is an enterprising and responsible mother who enjoys challenges. She has a business selling vegetables in one of the most popular markets in the city of Cusco. She has had this business for several years, and things are going very well. Currently she needs a loan so that she can buy merchandise such as potatoes, onions, carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, parsley, beans, green onions and more.

This group is comprised of friends and neighbors who formed the communal bank “Juntos Podemos” ("Together We Can") in the province of Cusco in the department of Cusco. The communal bank is comprised of people who are at all times looking for opportunities to get ahead, and to work each day to bring a better future to their children. All of the members are grateful for this loan opportunity and promise to complete their individual loan repayments according to the agreed-upon schedule.

The city of Cusco is located in the district and province of Cusco in the department of Cusco, and it is in the heart the ancient city of the Incas. It is known for its tourist attractions, its archaeological centers, its historic city center, its countryside and its history. It is also one of the enchanting cities of the southern region of the country. Additionally, it is known for its traditional festival Inti Raymi and for having one of the seven wonders of the world -- Machupicchu.
