Ccolque T Ikari - Chocopia Group's story

Nicolaza is 41 years old and married. She is a responsible and friendly person who progresses and moves forward with her family. She lives in the community of Chocopia in the district of Colquepata, where she goes about her daily work. She sews and tailors clothing. For this opportunity, she needs a loan to purchase thread, fabric, buttons, wool, and other items.

A group of neighbors and friends formed the Ccolque Tikari - Chocopia 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, to secure a better future for their children. The members work in agriculture, ranching, food sales, fattening pigs, and raising small animals. All of the members are grateful for the opportunity provided and promise to make their payments on time and in the agreed upon manner. (The person who appears in the inset photo asked permission to not be present for the meeting.)
