Los Comerciantes De Andahuaylillas Group's story

These members are part of a communal bank called "Los Comerciantes de Andahuayllilas". This bank is located in the district of Andahuaylillas, belonging to the province of Quispicanchis and the department of Cusco. The featured member is Rosario. She is 32 years old, married, and has 3 children. She works in the business of raising and selling animals. She raises the guinea pigs and hens, fattens them, and later sells them at different fairs. Through this small business, she supports her children. Her dream is to have her own location where she can sell the guinea pigs and hens. She is requesting this loan to purchase guinea pigs and hens, and provide food for them. The members who are featured in the group photo took the photo after a group meeting where they were asking for a work permit. The other members work selling a corn beverage called chicha, raising animals, a grocery business, and a retail business selling food. Rosario is grateful to those who are part of this dream, and is committed to complying with the payments and fees by the deadlines.

In this group: Rosario, Higidia, Juana, Yaquelin, Vilma, Luz Marina, Victoria, Maria Lourdes, Agustin
