A loan of $4,000 helped a member to buy corn, barley and wheat.


Mollecato Group's story

The members belong to the “MOLLECATO” communal bank. This bank is located in the district of Urcos, belonging to the province of Quispicanchis and the department of Cusco.

The featured member is Mrs. Augusta. She is 51 years old and has 6 children. She works on her business selling dry goods like wheat, barley and corn. She sells at a few fairs and markets, working from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Augusta has been in this business for 5 years and it is going very well. Her dream is to have a space where she can sell the grains. She is asking for the loan to buy corn, barley and wheat.

The member whose face is covered with a circle doesn't belong to the Mollecato communal bank anymore.

The other members make a living from a business selling food, an animal business, a grocery store business and a business selling grains.

Augusta thanks those who form part of this dream in this manner, and she commits to paying her fees in the time established.

In this group: Augusta, Tomasa, Catalina, Paulina, Lucio, Felicitas, Rafaela, Francisca, Gilma*, Ivan Moises*
