Señor De Huanca Group's story

A group of neighbors and friends established the “Señor de Huanca” Communal Bank in the district, province and department of Cusco. This bank is made up of several people who are constantly looking for opportunities to get ahead and to provide a better future for their children through their daily efforts. The members of the bank have different businesses, including photocopying, a grocery store, a multi-service store and milk sales.

Juana is a member of the communal bank. She is 60 years old and a widow with five children. She was born in the city of Cusco and continues to live in the city of her birth. She owns a hardware store and has had the business for 30 years. It has been doing well. Juana needs the current loan to purchase more merchandise, such as paint, nails and other items.

The bank members are grateful for the opportunity being provided to them and are committed to making their respective payments within the established time period.
