Moyopata-San Sebastian Group's story

The members belong to the “Moyopata de San Sebastian” communal bank, located in the San Jeronimo district of Cusco province and department.

Hilda, a member, is married, 42 years of age, and has 1 son. She works at her business of raising and selling farm animals, especially guinea pigs and hens. Hilda raises and fattens them, then sells them at different fairs. By means of this small business she advances her child. Her dream is to have a store where she might sell her guinea pigs and chickens.

Hilda is requesting a loan to purchase more guinea pigs and hens plus the feed they need. Her picture has been added to the group photo since she was unable to attend the meeting due to work obligations.

The other members are dedicated to businesses such as selling chicha [a traditional home brew], carpentry, a grocery store, and a stand selling emollients.

Hilda is grateful to all those who by this means, form a part of her dream. She is fully committed to complying with her established schedule of payments.

In this group: Hilda, Ernestina, Maritza, Alicia, Rosaria, Sabina, Leandro , Aureliano , Demetrio
