Emprendedores De San Cristobal Group's story

The communal bank Emprendedores de San Cristóbal was formed by a group of friends and neighbors from the district of Cusco, in Cusco province, department of Cusco. This communal bank comprises several people who are always looking for opportunities to get ahead and to give their children a better future through their daily effort.

Nieves is one of this communal bank's members. She is sixty years old, married, and has two children from this beautiful relationship. She was born in the heart of the village of Quincemil, but currently lives in the beautiful city of Cusco. She works selling men, women, and children's shoes. She has been in this business for several years and it is going very well. This time Nieves needs a loan in order to purchase more merchandise - such as school shoes - because the school season is about to begin.

The other members work selling beauty products, shoes, groceries, lubricants, spare parts for computers, and clothing.

All of the members appreciate the opportunity being offered and promise to timely comply with their different installment payments.
