Luz Del Sur Group's story

The members belong to Luz del Sur Communal Bank, located in the Cusco district in the province and department of Cusco. The member, Ernestina, is 55 years old and married, and has two children. She works in her business selling food. She makes dishes such as baked chicken, soup, and rice with meat. She works from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. She has been in this business for six years and it's going very well for her. She wants to get ahead with this job. Her dream is to expand her business selling food. She's requesting the loan to buy products to cook in her business, such as rice, chicken, meat, and vegetables. The other members earn their livings in cleaning-product sales, a grocery store, a beauty salon, and a restaurant. She's grateful to those who are part of this dream through this means and she pledges to make her payments by the established deadline.
