Señor De Coyllorytty De Collana Group's story

These are the members of the village bank "Senor de Coyllorytty de Collana", located in the district, province and department of Cusco.

Soledad, 35, is married and has three children. She raises animals like guinea pigs and hens, fattening them up and later selling them in the market or other fairs. She has been doing this for two years; before that she sold clothing but it wasn't going very well so she decided to change. Through this business she gets her kids ahead. Her dream is to have a store to sell her animals.

She asks for a loan to buy guinea pigs and hens and also food for the animals. She thanks those who become part of her dream through this loan and promises to make her payments in the established time frame.

The other members of the group are vegetable sellers, restauranteurs, grocery store owners and animal vendors.

In this group: Soledad, Vilma Juana, Juan Carlos*, Martha, Maruja, Eusebio, Karina, Hilaria, Vilma, Jesusa*, Cecilio
