A loan of $3,675 helped a member to buy milk.

Tunka Group's story

Tunka Communal Bank is made up of eight members, six women and two men.

The president of the bank is Aurora, 57. She lives in the Villa Concepción area and has five adult children. She earns a living making and selling cheese.

Aurora will use this loan to buy milk wholesale to make cheese. She wants to make the most of this opportunity. She's requesting this loan because she doesn't have the money. It will benefit her greatly because she can produce more cheese and increase her income.

Sometimes Aurora faces challenges in her business. The scarcity of milk, for example, prevents her from making cheese. This is why she requested the loan.

Aurora's happy for the opportunity of being granted the loan.
