A loan of $4,375 helped a member to buy guinea pigs for her business.


Pillao Group's story

The members belong to the communal bank “PILLAO”. This communal bank is located in Cusco District, which belongs to Cusco Province and Cusco Department.

Yanet is a member of this communal bank. She is 32 years old, lives with her partner and has two children. She divides her time between her daily activities and raising small animals for sale, such as guinea pigs and chickens. She has been in this business for years, which does well for her thanks to the hard work she puts in every day. She raises these small animals to sell them to her customers, in this way providing for her family.

Yanet is requesting this loan to buy guinea pigs for her business. The other members of the communal bank work at carpentry, selling vegetables, brick-making, snackbars, raising small animals, selling chicha (a fermented corn-based drink) and selling other foods.

The person whose face is covered in the photo does not belong to the communal bank.

Yanet is grateful to all those who form part of her dream in this way, and she promises to make her payments in the period established for her loan.
