Nueva Vida Group's story

The members belong to the Nueva Vida communal bank. This bank is located in the Cusco district, Cusco province, Cusco department.

Victoria, a member, is a 63 year old widow, and she has two children. She works in her business of selling clothes and lingerie. She sells sweaters, pants, shirts, and stockings, and other clothes. She works from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. She takes her clothes to different places like institutions or to her friends. She has been in this business for eight years, and it is going very well for her. Her dream is to have a store where she would be able to sell the clothes. She is requesting the loan to buy sweaters, stockings, shirts, pants, and jackets.

The members whose photos are inserted into the group photo asked for permission due to work. The member whose face is covered with a circle no longer belongs to the Nueva Vida communal bank.

The other members have a printing business, a business selling handicrafts, a grocery store business, and a business selling food.

Victoria is grateful to those who form part of this dream by providing this loan. She pledges to make her payments according to the established time frame.
