A loan of $4,700 helped a member to buy lipsticks, creams and perfumes.


Sol De Oro Group's story

The members belong to Sol de Oro Communal Bank, located in the district of Cusco in the province and department of Cusco. Grecia, who is 24 years old and single, is a member. She has a business selling beauty products and sells lipsticks, creams and perfumes. She also sells construction materials such as cement, sand and bricks. She works from 8am to 6pm and wants to get on in life by means of these small businesses. Her dream is to have a small shop where she can sell the beauty products. Grecia is asking for the loan to buy lipsticks, creams and perfumes. The member whose photo is attached to the group photo asked permission for work reasons to have her photo taken after the meeting. The other members sell bulk grains, run an internet business, have a grocery shop and a restaurant business. Grecia is grateful to everyone who is involved in helping with this dream and promises to pay her loan instalments in the agreed timeframe.
