Chuyma Sartañani Group's story

This is the Communal Bank. In Aymara, "chuyma sartanani" means "we will lift up our hearts." This is the way that both the president and all of the other group members feel.
The president, Mrs. Teresa R., is a hard-working woman who sells sweaters in at the morning market in the center of Tumusla. Two of the other group members are involved in the same line of work. Others work at local stores and telephone centers, while the men in the group work at veterinarian's clinics, as drivers, and are involved in other miscellaneous work.
This group is starting out strong in their first loan cycle, and hopes to achieve great success and continue to work with the institution (AgroCapital) in the future.
