Sr De Coyllority Cachimayo Group's story

The partners belong to the community bank "Sr de Coyllority Cachimayo." This bank is situated in the Cachimayo district. It belongs to the Anta province and the department of Cusco.

The member is Carmen. She is married, is 46 years old, and has 5 children. She alternates her daily activities with the business of raising small animals such as guinea pigs and hens. She has been in this business for a good while. It is going well for her, thanks to the effort that she puts into her business everyday.

The member raises these small animals in order to sell them later to her customers who ask for them. She would like to continue working in order to continue supporting her family in this way. The member is applying for the loan to buy guinea pigs and food for her business.

The photo was taken in two groups, since the group of 5 members was cooking for the rest of the group. The other members make their living in the sweater-selling business, the clothing business, the grocery store business, raising small animals, livestock, and food sales.

The member is grateful to all who form part of this dream through these means, and is committed to making her payments on time.

In this group: Bernardina, Francisca, Victoria, Eugenia, Mercedes, Catalina Maruja, Juana, Cleofe*, Mauricia, Lucy, Luz Marina*, Hayde, Leonidas, Samuel, Antonio, Carmen , Raymundo, Gregoria*, Mariela, Alicia *
