El Kuychy Group's story

These are the members of the communal bank group “EL KUYCHY”, located in the district of San Sebastian, of the Anta province and department of Cusco.

Maura lives with her partner. She is 33 years old and has a son. She makes a living selling fruits and vegetables such as apples, oranges, grapes, plantains, mandarine oranges, carrots, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Maura works from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. She has been in this business for seven years and it has gone very well for her. Maura's dream is to have her own shop from which to sell her fruits and vegetables. She is requesting this loan in order to buy oranges, plantains, grapes, onions, carrots, and cucumbers.

The person with the circle covering his face no longer is a member of the El Kuychy group.

The other members of this group run businesses selling eggs, animals, groceries, and handicrafts.

She is grateful to everyone who has a part in her dream through this loan and she pledges to make all of her repayments as scheduled.

In this group: Maura , Yuri*, Carmen, Lucila, Cristina, Jenni Alexandra, Jesus , Yuli Yovana, Nilo , Carlos Roberto, Emilia*
