La Gran Alianza Group's story

These members belong to the communal bank "La Gran Alianza" (The Great Alliance). This group is located in the district of Cusco, which belongs to the province and department of Cusco.

One member is Señora Modesta. She is a widow. She is 40 years old and has 5 children. She alternates her daily activities with her business of raising small animals such as guinea pigs and chickens. She has had this business for years, and it is going well for her thanks to the effort that she puts into it every day. She raises these little animals to later sell them to her customers, who request them from her. She is a responsible person, since in this way she is raising her family. She is applying for the loan to buy guinea pigs for her business.

The other members work in carpentry, selling chicha (a local beverage), selling trimmings for sewing, selling candy, a restaurant, printing, selling beauty products, grocery store, and a ceviche restaurant.

This bank member [Señora Modesta] is grateful to those who form part of her dream through this means, and she promises to make her payments on time.

In this group: Belen, Cristina, Buenaventura, Meyer Diddy, Madeleyne, Rosa, Ricardina, Julio, Victor Hugo, Modesta, Maria Antonieta, Jacinta, Sofia, Rosa Raquel
