Virgen De Copacabana Group's story

The members belong to the Communal Bank "Virgen Del Carmen". This bank is located in the district of Cusco, in the province and department of Cusco.

One group member is Mercedes. She is separated, 31 years old, and has one child. She alternates her daily activities with her business selling meat skewers, which she sells out of her house. Mercedes has been in this business for one year and it is going well thanks to the effort that she puts in to her business each day. She also works in her mother's restaurant, serving guests that go to the restaurant. Mercedes is a responsible and hard-working person and it is in this way that she moves her family forward. Mercedes is asking for this loan in order to buy supplies for her meat skewer business, including meat, oil, charcoal, and more.

Other group members make a living in different businesses, including selling light lunches, running a restaurant, selling hamburgers, general contracting, and agriculture.

Mercedes is grateful to those who are a part of this dream in this way and agrees to comply with the payment of her quotas in the established timeline.
