A loan of $5,150 helped a member to build her house.

Agua Buena Group's story

The members belong to the “Agua Buena” (“Good Water”) communal bank. This bank is located in the district, province, and department of Cusco.

Member Mery is married. She is 38 years old and has four children. She works in a beauty salon as a cosmetician. She cuts hair, does hair colouring, up-dos, etc. The member has been working there for a while and it is going well thanks to the effort she puts into her work every day. She also has her own grocery store, which her daughter helps her with. She wishes to be able to continue working in order to continue supporting her family.

She is requesting the loan for building her house.

The member whose photo is attached to the group photo asked permission to come late to the meeting due to work commitments.

The other members make a living from various businesses: printing, selling crafts, a grocery store, and selling animal feed.

The member thanks those who are part of her dream through this lending site and is committed to making her repayments on time.
