Los Exitosos Group's story

These borrowers are part of the Communal Bank “Los Exitosos” (The Successful Ones). The bank is located in the District, Province, and Department of Cusco.

One of the borrowers is Sra. Clara. She is 37 years old, married, and has three children. Clara works at her business of selling handicrafts. She produces items made of wool, such as mittens and caps. Clara works as an independent vendor, offering her products to different establishments that sell handicrafts. She has been in this business for seven years and has done very well. Her dream is to have a shop where she can sell handicrafts. Clara is requesting a loan so that she can buy colored wool, knitting needles, and fabrics.

The other members engage in business activities such as operating a restaurant, managing a grocery store, selling beauty products, and providing taxi services.

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