Kantu De San Jeronimo Group's story

A group of friends and neighbors formed the communal bank “Kantu de San Jeronimo” in the district of Cusco province of Cusco of the department of Cusco. It has been several years that this communal bank has been going, and it is very well organized. This communal bank is made up of people who are searching continuously for opportunities to get ahead, and to bring a better future to their children through their daily efforts. The primary business activities of the members are, for example: selling breakfast foods, an eatery, grocery sales, and other members work in the fields of tourism and education. Alcira was born in the city of Acomayo but now lives in the beautiful city of Cusco. She is married, and the result of this beautiful relationship is that they have two children. She sells nutritional products to different people as her business. It has been several years since she began this business, and it is going very well for her. At the moment, Alcira needs a loan for personal use in order to feed her children. The members as a whole are thankful for the opportunity that has been offered and promise to make payments of each of their different loans on schedule as arranged.
