Las Amistosas Group's story

These members belong to the communal bank “Las Amistosas”, which is located in the Urcos district, Quispicanchis province, department of Cusco.

Mrs. Haydee, thirty-two, lives in a common-law marriage and has four children. She sells fruits, like apples, oranges, bananas and grapes. She sends fruits in bulk to places like Puerto Maldonado, and has been doing it for one year now. She had a bar before, but decided to change business because there was a lot of competition in that sector.

Her dream is to have an establishment where she can sell her fruits. She is requesting this loan in order to buy fruits in bulk, such as apples, oranges, bananas and grapes.

The rest of the bank’s members have different lines of work, such as selling food, stockbreeding, selling groceries and selling potato.

Mrs. Haydee thanks all those supporting her dream through Kiva and promises to pay the installments in time.
