El Mirador De Bombon Group's story

The "El Mirador de Bombon" communal bank is made up of a group of friends and neighbours from the Challabamba district in the Paucartambo province. Sebastiana is 48 years old and married. From this wonderful marriage, she has two children. Sebastiana and her children live in the Mirador do Bombon community. Sebastiana is a hard-working mother who, from a young age, learned about agriculture from her parents. She also learned how to raise young animals and cattle. Sebastiana is charismatic and friendly. She is prospering as she grows potatoes, wheat,barley, and oats. In her spare time Sebastiana raises sheep, hens, and guinea pigs. She is also fattening up some cattle. On this occasion Sebastiana needs a loan in order to buy seeds and manure. This communal bank is made up of various members who are always looking for opportunities to get ahead and, through daily effort, to give their children a better future. The members work in agriculture, raising geese, raising young animals, and fattening up cattle. The members of the communal bank are grateful for this opportunity and promise to make the respective payments on time.
