Wiñay Huayna Group's story

The members belong to the “Wiñay Huayna” communal bank located in Cusco District belonging to Cusco Province and Department. One of them is Zoila, 62. She’s married and has a son. She works in her business selling hard-boiled eggs and potatoes. She sells from place to place in various streets in Cusco from 8am until 4pm and is able to pay her son’s university expenses by means of this business. She’s been in business for 18 years and does well but her dream is to own a restaurant. She’s requesting the loan to buy eggs and potatoes at wholesale for her hard-boiled eggs and potatoes business. She thanks all those who are sharing in her dream by this means and commits to make her payments as scheduled.
