Juntos Podemos Group's story

These members belong to the village bank “Juntos Podemos” [Together We Can], located in a village near the city of Cusco.

Hilda, 41 years old, is married and has two children. She has a business selling office products and also has a beauty salon. She offers hair coloring services, haircuts, and perms, and in her stationery shop she sells office products such as notebooks, pencils, and pens. She has had these businesses for seven years and they are going well. Hilda's dream is to expand the businesses. She is requesting this loan to buy hair dye, scissors, and permanent wave solution for her salon.
