A loan of $5,200 helped a member to buy notebooks, pens, pencils and erasers.

Banco Del Desarrollo Group's story

The members belong to the “Banco del Desarrollo" communal bank. This bank is located in Cusco district, which is part of Cusco province and Cusco department.

The member is Miriam Laura. She is 42, married, and has a son. She works at her bookstore business and sells notebooks, pens, pencils and erasers. She works from 8:00 a.m until 7 p.m. She has eight years in this business already and it is going very well.

The member's dream is to expand her bookstore business. She is requesting a loan in order to buy notebooks, pens, pencils and erasers. The members who are attached to the group photo had their pictures taken after the meeting, because they requested permission due to work reasons. We hope that by the next meeting everyone will be in attendance.

The other members work in a laundry business, an Internet café, grocery store business and restaurant. The member is grateful to those who form part of this dream by this means, and promises to make her installment payments on a timely basis.
