Ayni Group's story

A group of neighbors and friends formed the communal bank "Ayni" in the district, province and department of Cusco. This group is comprised of several people who look for every opportunity to get ahead and, through their hard work, provide their children with a better future. Noemí was born in the city of Cusco and is 62 years old. She is married and has five children. Her main business is a laundry service and she works with different hotels, being very responsible and laborious. This is how she provides for her family. Noemí is requesting a loan to buy work supplies such as detergent and bleach. She is grateful for the loan and committed to paying it back on time. The other members of the group are involved in hotel services, craft sales, tourism, teaching and nursing.
