Tikari Amaru Moqo Group's story

Tikari Amaru Moqo Communal Bank is new. It's made up of responsible and friendly people. The communal bank meetings are going to be every month in the house of one of the members, located in the Perka community in the Pisaq district of Calca Province in the department of Cusco. The majority of the members are neighbors and good friends.

The members are workers and entrepreneurs who are always looking for opportunities to get ahead and with their daily effort give their children a better future. The jobs of some of the members include, for example, handicraft sales, potato sales, grocery sales, textile sales, and food sales.

Félix, 51, lives in the community of Perka. He's a harworking and responsible man who makes a living fattening livestock and equines. He sells his animals in various markets in different cities in the provinces of Cusco, Urubamba, Anta, and Calca. He has worked in this business for several years now and it's going very well for him.

Félix needs the loan to buy more food such as grass, concentrate, vitamins, and other things.
