Solidaridad De Cachimayo Group's story

Bernardina belongs to the "SOLIDARIDAD DE CACHIMAYO" communal bank which is located in the Cachimayo District, Urubamba Province, Cusco Department.

She is 58 years old, is married and has 6 children. She alternates her daily activities with her business of raising small animals like guinea pigs and chickens amongst others. She has been doing this for a long time and things are going well for her thanks to the efforts she brings to her work every day. She raises these small animals to sell to her customers who request them and in this way she supports her family.

Bernadina is requesting a loan to buy guinea pigs for her business. She is grateful for the loan and promises to pay the installments on time. The other members sell animals, have a grocery store, sew, sell clothing, sell sweets, sell meals and sell pollipapapas (a local food).
