A loan of $5,700 helped a member to pay for her son's medication since he is dealing with some health issues.


Amancaes Group's story

The members belong to the "AMANCAES" communal bank. This bank is located in the province of Cusco and the department of Cusco. Yeni is 27 years old, lives with her partner, and has one son. She alternates between her daily activities and working as a server in a restaurant. She has been in this job for a good amount of time and it's going well thanks to the effort that she puts into her work every day. Yeni works six days a week, during the daytime. She is a responsible and hardworking person, which is how she provides for her family. Yeni is requesting the loan to pay for medication for her son, since he is dealing with some health issues. The other members earn their livings in a lodging business, a laudromat, a restaurant, and a local-phone-call business, and in professions like teaching, accounting, guiding tourists, and music. The member in the attached photo asked permission to arrive late to the meeting for work reasons. Yeni appreciates those who are part of her dream through this medium, and she promises to make her loan payments according to the established schedule.
