Los Gigantes De Santiago De Chacan Group's story

The members belong to the “Los Gigantes de Santiago de Chacan” communal bank. This bank is located in the Anta district, Anta province, Cusco department.

Pascuala is a member, and she is in a common-law marriage. She is 46 years old, and she has one child. She works in her agricultural business, and she sells wheat and beans. She has a small piece of land where she grows wheat and beans. She sells at the different markets. She works from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. She has had this business for six years, and it is going very well for her.

She is requesting the loan to buy bean and wheat seeds.

The other members sell animals, sell crops, provide taxi service, and have a livestock business. The member whose thumbnail photo is pasted to the group photo requested that her photo be taken later for work-related reasons

Pascuala is grateful to those who form part of this dream through this loan. She pledges to make her payments in a timely fashion.
