Moyopata-San Sebastian Group's story

The members belong to the “Mayopata San Sebastián” communal bank located in San Jerónimo District belonging to Cusco Province and Department.

Rosaria, 40, is married and has three children. She alternates her daily chores with a business selling fresh herbal beverages. She’s been in business for years and does well thanks to the daily effort she puts into her business. She sells from place to place in the city center and she wants to be able to continue working this way to support her family.

She’s requesting a loan to buy herbs, sugar, plastic drinking glasses, etc. for her business. She thanks all those who share her dream by this means and commits to make her payments as scheduled.

The other members are in carpentry, transportation, small animal sales and 'chicha' [corn-based traditional beverage] sales.

The members appearing in the inserted photo asked permission to arrive late at the meeting due to work reasons.
