A loan of $5,250 helped a member buy food for her cuyes.


Puka Pukayoc De Pachar Group's story

Mrs. Brígida lives in the Pachar neighborhood; she is 48 years old, is married and has four children out of the marriage. Her main source of income comes from agriculture and in breeding small animals like cuyes (a type of guinea pig) and chickens. She has had her business for several years since she does quite well. Brígida needs a loan to buy feed for her cuyes (fodder, grass and supplementary feed).

The members are grateful for the opportunity given to them and are committed to meeting all the payment quotas in the established time frames. (The members that appear in the lower part of the picture were late to the communal banks’ meeting).
