A loan of $6,700 helped a member to buy tyres for her car.


Llapallanchis Purisunchis Group's story

These members belong to the "Llapanchis Purisunchis" communal bank, in the Cusco district of the Cusco province and department. Member José Antonio is 31 years old. He is single and has one son. This member, as well as carrying out his daily duties at home, works as a taxi driver. He has been doing this work for quite some time and it is going well thanks to his daily efforts. José works during the day, and he wants to continue working in order to continue supporting his family. José is applying for a loan in order to buy tyres for his car. In the image, the woman in the small photo was unable to be at the meeting because of her work commitments. The other members of the communal bank have businesses selling clothes, selling handicrafts, selling groceries, a carpentry workshop, and a business selling meals. José is grateful to those helping him to achieve his dream through these loans and promises to make his repayments on time.
