San Roque Group's story

These members belong to the “SAN ROQUE” communal bank. This bank is located in the Cuzco district, in the province and department of Cuzco.

This member's name is Leandra Matilde. She is a 54 year old widow and has 3 children. She works at her business producing and selling milk and yogurt. She produces and then sells in different stores. She works from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. She has had this business for 7 years and it is going very well for her. Her dream is to expand the milk and yogurt selling business.

The member who is in the photo next to the group photo had his picture taken later because he had to miss due to work. The other members work in businesses selling gasoline, selling food, running a grocery store, and a restaurant. This member is grateful to those who are a part of her dream in this way and she is committed to making her payments on time.
