Inmaculada Concepcion De Pacca Group's story

These are the members of “Inmaculada Concepción de Pacca”, a Communal Bank located in Anta, a district in Anta province of the Cusco department. Luisa is 54 years old, she is a widow and she has 3 children. She alternated her daily chores with breeding small animals such as “cuyes” (“cuy” is Quechua for Guinea pig) and chicken, among others. She breeds these animals to then sell them to customers who request them; she has been engaged in this activity for quite some time now, and things are going well thanks to the efforts she daily works with. At times she also engages in selling vegetables. She is a responsible and persevering woman, as it is through these activities that she provides for her family. She is requesting a loan to buy cuyes and animal feed for her animals. The other members engage in cattle raising, clothes selling, breeding small animals such as cuyes, vegetable selling, corn selling, animal breeding, selling dried grains, running a general store. She is grateful to those that will help her making her dream come true through this mean, and she commits to complying with the repayment of her dues according to schedule.
