Las Flores De Yanaconas Group's story

The group member Vicentina is 45 years old, married, and the fruit of this beautiful relationship is her three children. She is a native of the province of Urubamba in the department of Cusco. Vicentina is a responsible and enterprising mother who moves her family forward. She works selling staple goods such as, for example, sugar, rice, oil, beverages, and grains. She has a small grocery store in the community of Yanacona in the district of Urubamba. At this opportunity, she is requesting a loan to purchase wholesale merchandise such as sacks of rice, sacks of sugar, cartons of milk, boxes of noodles and other things she is missing from her business. It has already been several years that she has worked in this business and it is going very well. (Vicentina is the one raising her hand in the photograph.)

This group is made up of neighbors and friends who formed the communal bank “Las Flores de Yanaconas” in the province of Urubamba in the department of Cusco. This communal bank is made up of people who each moment are looking for opportunities to get ahead and who strive daily to deliver a better future to their children. The group members in general are grateful for the opportunity offered and promise to complete their different payments in the established timetables.

Cusco is located in the full heart of the ancient city of the Incas and is characterized as being a tourist zone, for its archeological sites, its historical center, its landscapes, its history, and for being and enchanting city in the southern region of the country. Cusco is also know for its traditional fiesta celebration of Inti Raymi and because it is near one of the seven wonders of the world: “Machupicchu”.
