Pumamarca Group's story

These members belong to the Communal Bank “Pumamarca” which is located in the District of San Jeronimo in Cusco Province, Department of Cusco.

Sra. Vicentina is one of the members. She is 27 years old, in a common-law relationship, and has four children. Vicentina divides her time between her daily activities and her business of selling vegetables such as carrots, tomatoes, onions, and other products. She has been in this business for years and has done well thanks to the effort she puts into her work each day. Vicentina sells her merchandise as a street vendor at the entrance of one of the markets in the city of Cusco. She also spends some time raising small animals, such as guinea pigs and chickens. The animals are sold to customers who often request them. Vicentina is a responsible and industrious individual who works in this manner so that she can move her family forward.

The loan she is requesting will be used to buy merchandise, such as carrots in bulk. The other members engage in businesses that involve agriculture, selling vegetables, raising small animals, selling flowers, carpentry, and construction work.

The members who appear in the smaller attached photos requested permission to arrive late to the team meeting.

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