La Nueva Semilla Group's story

The group members belong to Asociación Arariwa's "La Nueva Semilla" ("The New Seed") village bank in the city of Cusco. Leonarda lives in the beautiful city of Cusco and serves as both mother and father for her three children. She is 48 years old and works selling fruit, such as apples, bananas, papayas, grapes, oranges and pineapples, among others. She has been in this business for a number of years, and does quite well thanks to her hard work. Leonarda is requesting a loan to buy more fruit.

The other group members work selling fruit, land, guinea pigs, traditional local clothing, chocolate, and drafting house plans.

The group members are grateful to those who are supporting this dream and are committed to make all of their payments within the established time frame.
