A loan of $6,050 helped a member to buy books, notebooks, and pens.

Happy Ayllu Group's story

The members belong to Happy Ayllu Communal Bank, located in the district of Cusco in the province of Cusco and department of Cusco.

The member is Bertha, 62. She's married and has two children. She works as an elementary-school teacher from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. She's dedicated to this job and it's going very well for her. Her dream is to have a store where she sells clothing.

She's requesting the loan to buy books, notebooks, and pens to work as a teacher.

The member attached to the group photo had permission to have her photograph taken after the meeting because of work. The member whose face is covered with a circle has left Happy Ayllu Communal Bank.

The businesses of the other members are selling beauty products, clothing, groceries, and soda.

She's grateful to those who are part of her dream through this loan and she promises to make her payments punctually.

In this group: Bertha, Marcia Eiko, Mario Kenji, Julio Mario, Rocio Ofelia, Evelin Yurico, Carlos Nicoll, Orlando, Angel*, Alejandrina, Vilma, Nicolasa, Regina Encarnacion, Susan Anthony, Lina America
