Granito De Mostaza Group's story

These members belong to the Communal Bank “Granito de Mostaza” (Little Mustard Seed) which is located in the District, Province, and Department of Cusco.

One of the members is Sra. Esther, who has her hand raised in the photo. She is 40 years old, single, and has one child. Esther works by taking care of elderly people in their home. Her work schedule is from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. She has always worked by caring for children and elderly people. Esther enjoys the work since it has enabled her to help her children move forward. Her dream is to open a restaurant. She is requesting a loan in order to pay for her son’s high school studies.

The member who is pictured in the smaller photo arrived much later because he received permission for work reasons.

The other members engage in businesses such as selling handicrafts, selling tools, providing transportation, and managing a restaurant.

Esther is grateful to those who have helped to fulfill her dream in this manner, so she promises to complete her payments according to the established terms.

In this group: Esther, Mario Anderson, Evelin Mercedes, Jimena Adriana, Marcial Jesus, Lisbeth*, Adrian Wilder, Yris Madeleine, Maria Esther
