Vallecito De Paucona Group's story

Lucia is 45 years old and married. She is a responsible and friendly person who helps her family progress. She lives in the community of Paucona in the district of Colquepata where she goes about her daily work. She works in farming, ranching, selling vegetables, and raising small animals. She has several farm lands where she plants different crops such as potatoes, barley, corn, and others. For this opportunity, she needs a loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer.

A group of neighbors and friends formed the Vallecito de Paucona Communal Bank in the district of Colquepata. This communal bank is composed of several people who are looking at every moment for opportunities to move forward, and with their daily effort, secure a better future for their children. The members work in farming, ranching, selling food, fattening pigs, and raising small animals. The members are grateful for the opportunity provided and promise to make their payments on time and in the agreed upon manner.
