A loan of $5,425 helped a member to buy guinea pigs, hens, and food for them.

Virgen De Natividad I Group's story

The members belong to the “VIRGEN NATIVIDAD I” communal bank. This bank is located in the district of Cusco belonging to the province of Cusco and department of Cusco.

The member is Constantina. She is married and 46 years old. She works at her business selling and raising animals. She raises guinea pigs and hens, helping them grow and fatten, and then she sells them at various markets. By means of this small business, she is able to get her children ahead. Her dream is to have a place where she can sell the guinea pigs and hens. She is asking for the loan to buy guinea pigs, hens and food for them.

The members that are attached to the group photo took those photos after the meeting; they asked permission to do so for work reasons. The other members make a living from a beauty salon business, a business selling livestock, a grocery store business and a business selling animals.

Constantina thanks those who form part of this dream in this way, and she commits to making her payments in the time period established.

In this group: Constantina, Janeth*, Carlota, Gudelia*, Gabriela, Luz Marina, Diana, Evelyn Luzmila, Nelly Virginia, Alicia
