Yahuar Maqui Group's story

The members belong to the comunal bank “Yahuar Maqui.” This bank is located in the district of Cusco, belonging to the province of Cusco and the department of Cusco.

Reyna Yamina lives with her partner, is 41 years old, and has three children. She works in her business selling clothes. She sells pants, sweaters, t-shirts, and blouses. She sells in mobile form distributing to her friends and general public. She works from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. She already has seven years’ experience in this business and it is going very well for her. Previously she worked in a restaurant but it was very difficult to obtain a fixed location. Therefore, she decided to change the business. Her dream is to expand the business selling clothing. She is requesting the loan to buy blouses, pants, t-shirts, and sweaters.

The other members make their livings selling crafts, working in a mechanic’s shop, a restaurant, and a grocery store.

Reyna Yamina thanks those who form a part of this dream by these means and promises to complete the payments of her dues in the established period.
