Sol De Oro Group's story

The members belong to the “Sol de Oro” (Golden Sun) communal bank located in Cusco District belonging to Cusco Province and Department. Benedicta, 52, is separated and has three children. She alternates her daily activities with a grocery store. She sells various types of products like rice, sugar, milk, snacks, soft-drinks, etc. She’s been in business for years and does quite well thanks to the effort she puts into it daily. She also sells food from place to place in the morning and then heads to her other business, the grocery store. She’s a responsible, enterprising person who has supported her family this way. She’s requesting the loan to buy merchandise like rice and milk for the store. She is grateful to all who share her dream by this means and commits to make her installment payments as scheduled. The other group members sell frozen potatoes, blankets, make sweatshirts, drive a school bus and work in carpentry.
