Juntos Podemos Group's story

The members belong to the "JUNTOS PODEMOS" ("TOGETHER WE CAN") communal bank which is situated in Cusco province, in Cusco region. Ulda is 33 years old, separated and the mother of 2 children. She divides her time between her daily activities and her business making and selling handicrafts: dolls, backpacks and traditional blankets, among other things. Ulda has been in this business for some years now and is successful thanks to the effort which she puts into it on a daily basis. She sells all her merchandise from her shop in the city centre and her responsible and determined approach enables her to support her family. She is applying for the loan to buy materials such as leather and alpaca wool. The other members of the group work in French fries and hotdog sales, clothing sales, metalwork, carpentry, handicrafts sales and teaching. Ulda is grateful to those who are part of her dream in this way and is committed to make her repayments within the agreed period.
