Qorichuspa Group's story

The borrowers belong to the Qorichuspa communal bank. This bank is located in the district of Ollantaytambo, which belongs to the province of Urubamba and department of Cusco. One member is Marina. She is single, 37 years old, and has two children. She works in her business, selling vegetables and fruits. She sells apples, oranges, grapes, plantains, and mandarins. She also sells carrots, tomatoes, and cucumbers. She has a stall in the market where she sells the fruits and vegetables. She works from 8 am to 5 pm. She already has seven years' experience in this business, and it is going very well for her. Her dream is to have a store where she can sell her fruits and vegetables. The borrower is requesting the loan to purchase oranges, plantains, grapes, onions, carrots, and cucumbers. The borrower with his face blurred out is no longer a member of this communal bank. The borrowers that are in the inset photo had their picture taken after the group photo because they asked permission to be absent on the day of the group photo due to work reasons. The other communal bank members sell ceramics, have a clothing business, run a grocery store, and sell meals. The group members are grateful to those who will be part of their dream through this platform, and they promise to make their payments on time and in the agreed-upon manner.

In this group: Marina, Ruth Lidia, Orlando, Hipolita, Mabel Edith, Elizabeth, Daniel, Margarita, Hilda Leonor, Elio, Victoria, Ruth Estefany*
