Buena Esperanza Group's story

These members belong to the Communal Bank “Buena Esperanza” (Good Hope) which is located in the District of Cusco in Cusco Province, Department of Cusco.

One of the members is Sra. Carmen. She is 33 years old, in a common-law relationship, and has two children. Carmen divides her time between her daily activities and her business of selling fruit at one of the markets in the city. She has been in business for a long time and is doing well thanks to the effort she puts forth each day into her work. Carmen sells bananas, oranges, papayas, and other fruits. She is a responsible and industrious person, and working in this manner has helped to move her family forward.

Carmen is requesting a loan in order to buy fruits for her business, such as papayas and other products. The other members sell clothes, sell cosmetics, act as tour guides, raise animals, produce handicrafts, prepare snacks, manage a grocery store, and sell beauty products. The small photos display two members who requested permission to arrive late to the meeting because of their work.

Carmen is grateful to those who have helped to fulfill her dream in this manner, so she promises to complete her payments according to the established terms.
