A loan of $3,650 helped a member to buy guinea pigs.

Los Gigantes De Santiago De Chacan Group's story

The members belong to Los Gigantes de Santiago de Chacan Communal Bank, located in the Anta district in the province of Anta and the department of Cusco.

The member, Lucía, 31, is separated and has three children. She alternates her daily activities with her business raising small animals such as guinea pigs. She raises these little animals to later sell to customers who request them. Lucía has been in this business for a long time and it's going well for her thanks to the effort she puts into it every day. She also works in agriculture to get her family ahead.

Lucía's requesting the loan to buy guinea pigs for her business.

The other members work selling animals, farming, ranching, selling wheat and corn, and baking. The person whose face is covered doesn't belong to the communal bank. The member who's in the attached photo had permission to arrive late to the meeting because of work.

Lucía's grateful to those who share her dream through this loan. She promises to make her payments on time.
