Abelina's story

Introducing Abelina, a member of "Virgen del Carmen de Yuncaypata", a Communal Bank located in Yuncaypata, a community of the province and department of Cusco.

Abelina keeps on breeding small animals such as “cuyes” (“cuy” is Quechua for Guinea pig), hens and pigs. She breeds these animals to then sell them to those among her customers that mostly request them, such as restaurants and fair retailers. She has been engaged in this activity for many years and things are going well thanks to the determination she daily works with. Abelina is a responsible and persevering person, as though this activity she provides for her family.

She is requesting a loan to buy cuyes for her activity.

She is happy about the loan and she commits to complying with the repayments of her dues.
