Wiñay Huayna Group's story

These are the members of the “WIÑAY HUAYNA” communal bank, located in the Cusco district, province, and department.

Nelly is 42 years old, single, and has a son. She works her beauty products business and sells lipstick, creams, and perfumes and works from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. She’s been doing this for several years and her dream is to have a shop where she can sell her beauty products. She is asking for this loan to buy creams, lipsticks, and perfumes.

The other members whose pictures were added to the photograph had their pictures taken after the meeting due to work commitments.

The other members sell eggs, clothing, and have grocery stores and weaving businesses.

She is grateful to those who are part of this dream through this means and is committed to making her payments on time.

In this group: Nelly, Zoila, Norma, Jaqueline, Victor Teodocio, Luis Felipe*, Gavina, Felipe, Elizabeth, Maria Graciela, Karen Janessi*, Bery Luz, Johana, Cesar Augusto
