Apu Curi Group's story

The members belong to the “Apu Curi” communal bank located in Urcos District belonging to Quispicanchis Province, Cusco Department.

Benecia, 42, has a spouse and 8 children. She works in her business raising and selling animals. She raises guinea pigs. She helps them grow and fattens them up to then sell them in various livestock markets. She supports her children by means of this small business. Her dream is to have a locale in which to sell her guinea pigs. She’s requesting the loan to buy guinea pigs and feed for them. She thanks all those who share her dream by this means and commits to make her payments as scheduled. The other members sell sheep, sell chicha [traditional corn-based beverage], are grocers and work in agriculture.
