Inti Raymi Group's story

A group of neighbors and friends form the communal bank "Inti Raymi" in the community of Suchubamba. This communal bank is formed by various people who are always looking for opportunities to get ahead and with their daily efforts to give a better future for their children. The members are dedicated to agricultural work, selling fruit, selling food, selling groceries, raising livestock, making artisanal products, and raising smaller animals, among other activities.

María Rosa is 44 years old and has seven children. She is a responsible and loving person who pushes her family forward. She was born in the district of Challabamba and she lives in the same district where she was born. She sells basic necessity products like rice, sugar, beans, cooking oil, bread, sodas, water and other items. With this opportunity, María Rosa needs a loan so she can purchase sacks of rice and sacks of sugar. The members of her group are thankful for the opportunity given them and they promise to complete their re-payments within the established time frame. (The people who appear ar the bottom of the photo asked permission to not be at the meeting and we had to go to their homes to photograph them.)

(The community of Suchubamba is located in the Callabamba district in the province of Paucartambo in the department of Cuzco.)
