A loan of $1,125 helped a member buy chickens.

Virgen Natividad De Chuso Group's story

These people are members of the Virgen Natividad de Chuso Community Bank located in the district and province of Urubamba in the department of Cusco.

One of the members is Sra. Silveriana. She is 39 years old, married and has five children. She earns her living raising and then selling chickens in various markets. Silveriana is also a farmer and grows corn and potatoes on her land. Through these two small businesses she supports her children.

Silveriana's dream is to have a stall from where she can sell the chickens. With the loan money she plans to buy chickens.

The two people whose photos were added later were not present for the group photo. They were excused for reasons of work. Group members are engaged in such work as selling food, selling animals, grocery store, and farming.

Silveriana is grateful to those who contribute to this loan and help her fulfill her dream. She promises to pay back the money according to the schedule.
