Los Urpichas De Huancaro Group's story

The members belong to a communal bank known as ‘Los Urpichas de Huancaro’, which is located in the district of Cusco and belongs to the province and department of the same name.

One member, Yery Bernarded, 34, lives with her partner and has three children. She has a business selling vegetables, such as carrots, tomatoes and cucumbers. She has a stall in the market where she sells them, working from 8 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. She has been in this business for seven years and it is going very well. She dreams of having her own shop to sell her products. She is asking for a loan to buy more onions, carrots and cucumbers.

Apart from selling vegetables, other activities the members are involved in are selling animals and running grocery stores or restaurants.

This member appreciates those who help her to fulfill her dream and she promises to pay back her loan on time.
