Lucero Group's story

These members belong to the “Lucero” Communal Bank, which is located in the district of Cuzco, part of Cuzco Province and Cuzco Department.

The featured member is Sra. Ines, who is 42 years old, married and has two children. She has a business selling handicrafts and both she and her husband make the crafts, such as Cuzcan paintings. Ines paints traditional pictures of the city of Cuzco and has had this business for 15 years. Moreover she enjoys painting and drawing very much and also takes her pictures to places like Bolivia and Brasil.

Through this business this member is helping her children get ahead. Her dream is to own a store where she can sell her pictures. This member is requesting the loan to purchase materials, such as paints, wood, oils and paintbrushes in order to continue painting her Cuzcan pictures.

The other members have businesses selling groceries, furniture, sweets and running a restaurant.
