Kuska Purisunchis Group's story

The members belong to the communal bank “KUSKA PURISUNCHIS”, which is located in the district of Cusco, which is also in the province and department of Cusco.

The member is Juana, who is 40 years old, lives with her partner, and has three children. She has her own business selling food. She makes different kinds of dishes, such as roasted chicken, chicken and rice, and soups. Juana prepares breakfast, lunch and dinner and works from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. She now has eight years of experience with this business, and it is going well for her. Her dream is to have a restaurant. She is requesting this loan to buy chicken, meat and vegetables for her business.

The other members’ businesses include sales of sweets and candies, clothing sales, a grocery store, and food sales. The borrowers that are in the supplemental photo asked if they could have their photo taken at a separate time, because of a conflict with work.

Juana says that she is grateful to all those who are a part of her dream through this loan, and that she promises to make her payments on time.
