Sumac Puririsun Group's story

The members belong to the “Sumac Puririsun” communal bank. The member is Gloria, 60. She has a spouse and two children. She alternates her daily activities with a business selling ‘mazamorra’ [purple corn custard] and rice pudding. She sells from place to place and has been in this business for a good amount of time; she does well thanks to the daily effort she puts into her business. She also sells organic coffee. She works to order and also from place to place and this is how she supports her family.

She requests the loan to buy sugar, rice and cinnamon, among others for her business. She thanks those who share her dream by this means and commits to make her payments as scheduled. The businesses of the other group members are food sales, raising animals, cleaning, mechanic shop, cell phone sales, crafts sales and sweater sales.
