Sumac Puririsun Group's story

These are members of the “SUMAC PURIRISUN” communal bank, situated in the district of Cusco, which belongs to Cusco province and Cusco department.

Luz Marina, who is a member, is 43 years old, is single and has 2 children. She works in her business selling and rearing animals. She breeds the chickens and guinea pigs, grows them on then fattens them and sells them at the various markets. Thanks to her small business she is able to bring up her children. Her dream is to have a shop where she can sell the chickens and guinea pigs.

Luz Marina is asking for the loan to buy chickens and guinea pigs and feed for them.

The other members have businesses selling beauty products, selling crafts, a grocery shop and selling animals.
Luz Marina is grateful to those who are helping her achieve her dream in this way and promises to pay her instalments in the agreed timeframe.
