Sr. De Coyllority De Arin Group's story

The communal bank "Sr. de Coyllority de Arin" is made up of a group of neighbors and friends in the center of the town of Arin, which is located in the district and province of Calca. This communal bank is made up of several people who search for opportunities to move forward in every moment. With their daily effort, they hope to give a better future to their children. The business activities of the members include selling chicha (a sweet drink made of corn), buying and selling small animals, and selling maize, vegetables, artisan crafts, and cosmetics, and offering services. Emiliana was born in the town center of Arin, and she lives in the same place where she was born. Her main business activities are agriculture and livestock. She sells vegetables in different markets in the cities of Urubamba and Calca. She also raises small livestock, such as guinea pigs and chickens. Emiliana needs this loan to buy seeds and manure. The members are grateful for this opportunity and they are committed to paying their fees at the established times.
