Sumac Tica Group's story

Raymunda, 67, is a member of the “Sumac Tica” communal bank located in Urubamba District in Urubamba Province and Cusco Department. She’s married and has two children. She alternates her daily activities with selling ‘chicha de jora’ [type of corn beer] and beer. She’s been in business for years and does well thanks to the effort she puts into it every day. Her shop is located at home and she also works raising small farm animals like guinea pigs; she raises them to then sell to customers that request them. She is a responsible, dedicated person who supports her family this way. She requested the loan to buy beer for her business. She feels grateful for the granted loan and commits to make her installment payments as scheduled. The other group members sell vegetables, food, make ‘chicha,’ raise animals, sell, ice-cream and sell firewood.
