Inti Raymi Colca Group's story

The "INTI RAYMI COLCA" Communal Bank is composed of 11 members—nine women and two men—who earn their livings in different ways.

The president of the bank is Agustina, who has been a widow for several years. Agustina works selling vegetables. She sells corn at her stand, which is located in one of Cochabamba's largest markets.

This loan is her first with the institution, and Agustina is going to use it to purchase construction materials for the refurbishment and construction of her residence. Her reason for requesting this loan is that she wants her family to be more comfortable.

Agustina is facing challenges in her business like competition and having to get up early to buy her vegetables. She is going to use her profits to continue buying materials for her house. She is happy and grateful to the institution for the support it has provided.
