Patron De San Jeronimo Group's story

The members belong to the “Patrón de San Jerónimo” communal bank which is located in San Jerónimo District belonging to Cusco Province and Department. Neri Bruna, 53, is single and has two children. She works in a grocery store where she sells basic staples like rice, sugar, milk and oil. She works from 6am until 10pm and has been in business for 8 years. In her free time she likes going out with her children. Her dream is to expand the grocery store. She’s requesting a loan to buy rice, sugar, milk and oil. By this means she thanks those who share her dream and commits to make her payments as scheduled. The other members sell jewelry, clothes, groceries and beauty products. The borrowers that are pasted into the group photo could not come to the loan meeting because of work.
