A loan of $6,025 helped a member to buy shoes and slippers.

Virgen De Las Nieves Group's story

The members belong to Virgen de las Nieves Communal Bank, located in the district of Cusco in the province and department of Cusco. The member, Julissa, is 36 years old and single. She works in her business selling shoes and slippers for men, women, and children. She sells independently, going to different places to sell. She gets the merchandise from various places. She works from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. She has been in the business for four years already and it's going very well for her. In her free time she likes to make cakes. Her dream is to have a place where she can sell slippers and shoes.

She's requesting the loan to buy shoes and slippers.

The member who's attached to the group photo asked permission for her photo to be taken later because of work.

The other members make a living selling crafts, groceries, clothing, and food.

She's grateful to those who are part of this dream and pledges to make her payments punctually.
