Dos De Mayo Group's story

The members belong to the communal bank “DOS DE MAYO”. This group is located in the district of Cusco, in the province of Cusco and department of Cusco. Martha, who is a member, is 46 years old, is single and has 3 children. She works in her business selling clothing and lingerie. She sells jumpers, trousers, polo shirts, tights, and other clothing. She works from 8am until 7pm taking her stock to different places such as institutions or her friends. Martha has had this business for 8 years now and it is going well for her. Her dream is to have a shop where she can sell her clothing.

Martha is asking for the loan to buy jumpers, tights, polo shirts, trousers and zip jackets.

The member whose photo is attached to the group photo had his photo taken after the meeting. He asked permission because of work reasons. The member whose face is covered with a circle no longer belongs to the Dos de Mayo communal bank.

The other members earn a living selling clothing, rearing animals, or have a grocery shop or sell food.

Martha thanks those who are involved in this dream of hers through this loan and promises to fulfil her loan repayments in the agreed timeframe.
