Virgen De Guadalupe- Cusco Group's story

The members belong to Virgen de Guadalupe-Cusco Communal Bank, located in the province of Cusco and department of Cusco.

The member, María, 37, lives with her partner and has four children. She alternates her daily activities with her business selling leather wallets and bags. 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 makes these products to sell to her customers who request them. She's a responsible and persevering person, this being the way she gets her family ahead.

She's requesting the loan to buy materials such as leather for her business.

The other members work making rain ponchos, selling crafts, selling leather, arts and crafts, and selling cars.

She's grateful to those who are part of her dream through this loan and she's committed to making her payments punctually.
