The members belong to the community bank "Good Hope." This bank is located in the district of Cusco, which belongs to the province of Cusco and the region of Cusco.

The member alternates her daily activities between her grocery store business where she sells different types of products, like rice, sugar, milk, candies and sodas, among others, and she also works raising young animals like guinea pigs and hens. She feels satisfied with her business which brings her both economic and personal satisfaction. She hopes to be able to continue working in order to get ahead.

The other members work selling clothes, selling movies, selling cosmetics, as a tourist guide, a teacher and a worker for a private enterprise.

The member appears in the extra photo. She asked permission to arrive late to the meeting because of her work.

She is grateful to those who make up part of the means to achieve this dream and she promises to complete the payment of her dues on time.
