Santa Rosa De Collana Group's story

The members belong to the “Santa Rosa de Collana” communal bank located in Cusco District belonging to Cusco Province and Department.

One of the members is Remigia, 50. She’s married and has six children. She works in her business raising animals like guinea pigs, chickens and pigs. She fattens them up and then sells them in various markets. She also works in agriculture. She has a field where she grows potatoes and corn she also sells in the market. She’s been in the animal raising and in the agriculture business for about 7 years and by means of them is able to support her children. Her dream is to have a locale in which to sell her animals. She’s requesting the loan to buy guinea pigs, chicks and pigs and also to buy feed for the animals. Remigia is grateful to those who share her dream this way and commits to make her installment payments as scheduled. The other members work selling toys, groceries, provide taxi services, run a restaurant and sell food.

The members who are in the photo attached to the group photo took the photo later because they requested permission due to work. The woman with her face covered with a circle is no longer a member of the Santa Rosa de Collana communal bank.
