Mollecato Group's story

The members belong to the communal bank MOLLECATO. The bank is located in the district of Urcos, part of the Quispicanchis province in the department of Cusco. One member is Felicitas, age 59. She is single and has seven children. Felicitas' main business is raising and selling animals. She raises and fattens guinea pigs and chickens and then sells them in different markets. Through this business, she is able to get her children ahead. Her dream is to have a location where she can sell her guinea pigs and chickens. This particular loan will be used to buy more animals and the feed that they need. The members shown attached to the group photo had their pictures taken after the meeting; the requested and received permission for work reasons. The other members are in a variety of businesses, including selling food, selling animals, selling cattle, and running a grocery store. Felicitas thanks anyone who becomes part of her dream in this way, and she is committed to making her payments with the established time frame.
