Virgen Del Carmen De Yuncaypata Group's story

These members belong to the “VIRGEN DEL CARMEN DE YUNCAYPATA” communal bank from the Asociación Arariwa. They live in the district of Cuzco in the province of Cuzco, Peru.

Tisalia is 22 years old. She is in a common law marriage and has 1 child. She works raising animals such as pigs, guinea pigs and chickens. She raises them and fattens them up to sell at different markets. She also studies accounting at a university in the city of Cuzco and she wants to get ahead and be a professional. Tisalia has been doing this business for several years and it is going very well. At this time, Tisalia needs the loan to buy guinea pigs, pigs and chickens.

The other members work with livestock, farming, selling food, raising small animals and offering professional services. The members are grateful to the people who have been a part of this dream in this way and they are committed to making their payments on time.
