Sirenachayoc Group's story

The members belong to the “Sirenachayoc” communal bank located in Cusco District belonging to Cusco Province and Department. Feliciana, 67, is married and has three children. She works in her business selling crafts. She knits such things as blankets and mittens; she knits them and then distributes them to various stores that sell crafts. She works from 8am until 7pm and has been in business 8 years; she enjoys knitting and is able to support her children this way. Her dream is to have a locale where she can sell her crafts. She’s requesting the loan to buy wool, knitting needles and colored yearn. She is grateful to those who share her dream by this means and commits to make her payments as scheduled.
