Imasumac De Amadeo Repeto Group's story

The members belong to Imasumac de Amadeo Repeto Communal Bank, located in the province of Cusco, department of Cusco.

The member, Ricardina, 59, is separated and has four children. She divides her time between her daily activities and her business selling clothing. She has been in this business for years and it's going well for her thanks to the effort she puts into it every day. She sells pants, coats, polo shirts, sweaters, and other clothing for her customers who order from her, including friends and relatives. She's a responsible and hardworking person, this being the way she gets her family ahead.

She's requesting the loan to buy merchandise such as coats for her business.

The other members make a living in "salchipapas" sales [sausage and fried potatoes], clothing sales, metalworking, carpentry, craft sales, and teaching. The member in the attached photo asked permission to arrive late to the meeting.

The member is grateful to those who share this dream by this means and she's committed to making her payments on time.
