Señor De Huanca Milagroso Group's story

These communal bank members belong to the communal bank "Señor de Huanca Milagroso." This bank is located in the district of Cusco, which belongs to the province of Cusco and department of Cusco.

One of the members, Genara, is 72 years old. She has five children and is a widow. She alternates her daily activities with her business, a grocery store. She sells basic products such as milk, rice, and sugar, among other items. She also sells fruit in her business. She has had this business for quite a while, and it is going well for her, thanks to the effort that she puts into her business every day. She wants to be able to continue working so that in this way she can continue helping her family.

She is applying for the loan to buy sugar and rice.

The other members work in businesses such as selling wine, selling fruit, school transport, handicrafts, and a restaurant. The member who is adjacent in the photo asked permission to arrive late for the meeting because of work reasons.

The communal bank member is grateful to those who form part of this dream through this means, and she promises to make her payments on the established schedule.
