Vamos Juntos Group's story

These members are part of the Communal Bank “Vamos Juntos” (We Go Together). This bank is located in the District, Province, and Department of Cusco.

One of the members is Sra. Juana. She is 47 years old, married, and has two children. Juana divides her time between her daily activities and her business of selling sweets such as cookies, candy, lollipops, chocolates, and other items. She has been in this business for years and has done well thanks to the effort she puts into her work each day. Juana sells every day as a street vendor. She has a cart that is set up at the entrance of one of the children’s parks in the city of Cusco. Juana is a responsible and diligent individual who works in this manner so that she can help her family move forward. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy merchandise such as cookies, chocolates, and other items for her business.

The other members engage in business activities such as managing a travel agency, working as a master builder, selling shoes, selling dairy products, selling food, producing artwork, making candy, making cakes, and managing a beauty salon. The smaller photo shows the members who requested permission to arrive late to the meeting because of work reasons.

Juana is grateful to those who have helped fulfill her dream in this manner, so she is promises to complete her payments according to the established terms.
