Warmicuna Llanqanchis Group's story

The members belong to the “Warmicuna Llanoqanchis” communal bank located in Anta District belonging to Anta Province and Cusco Department. Lucy, 25, has a spouse and a son. She works in her business raising animals; she raises guinea pigs and pigs. She fattens them up and when they grow she sells them in various street markets. She works from 8am until 4pm and has been in business two years. She’s doing well and is able to support her son by means of this business. She used to work in a gas station but didn’t do too well because she was paid very little. Her dream is to have a place to sell her animals. She’s requesting the loan to buy guinea pigs, pigs and feed for them. She is grateful to those who share her dream by this means and commits to make her payments as scheduled.
