A loan of $1,650 helped a member to buy guinea pigs for her business.

Wiñay Kury Group's story

The communal bank "WIÑAY KURY" is located in the district of Quiquijana, province of Quispicanchis, department of Cusco.

One of the members, Dianet, is 38 years old, divorced and has two children. She alternates her daily activities with buying and selling small animals such as guinea pigs, chickens, etc., and has been in business for quite some time. It is going well thanks to the hard work she dedicates to it every day. She raises small animals that she later sells to customers on an order basis. She hopes to continue working so her business will prosper and is requesting a loan to buy guinea pigs for her business.

The other members of the group are involved in activities such as a grocery store business, food sales, hair salon, alpaca sales, raising small animals, milk sales, vegetable sales, and master construction worker.

The photos are of two groups because the second group (at the right) had to arrive late because of work.

Dianet is grateful to everyone helping her reach her goal and she is committed to paying back the loan on time.

In this group: Mabel, Agustin, Eva, Encarnacion, Maria Jesus, Francisca, Ascencia*, Fiorela, Celestina*, Dianet, Sabina
