San Isidro De Yanahuara Group's story

The members belong to San Isidro de Yanahuara Communal Bank, located in the district of Urubamba in the province of Urubamba and department of Cusco.

The member, Karin, 37, lives with her partner and has four children. She works in her business raising animals: chickens, guinea pigs, and ducks. She fattens them and makes them grow, then sells them in various markets and fairs. She works from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. She has been in this business for six years and it's going very well for her. Her dream is to have a place to sell her animals.

She's requesting a loan to buy chickens, guinea pigs, ducks, and animal feed.

The other members' businesses are raising animals, a grocery store, selling "chicha" [a corn beverage], and selling guinea pigs.

She's grateful to those who, through this loan, are part of her dream, and she pledges to make her payments on time.

In this group: Karin, Lisbeth, Vicente, Angelica, Milagros, Jovita, Juliana, Julian, Victoria, Gregoria, Francisca, Josefina, Alexci Moises
