Los Exitosos Group's story

These members belong to the communal bank "Los Exitosos" (The Successful Ones). This bank is located in the district of Cusco, which belongs to the province and department of Cusco.

One member is Señora Celinda. She is married and is 39 years old. She has 3 children. She alternates her daily activities with her business of selling clothing. She has been working in the business for some time, and it is going well for her thanks to the effort that she puts into it every day. She works on order for all the customers who come to her, such as friends and relatives, among others. She wants to be able to continue working so that in this way she can continue supporting her family.

She is applying for the loan to buy jackets for her business.

The group member in the added photo asked permission to arrive late for the meeting because of work reasons.

The other members work in handicrafts, a grocery store, selling beauty products, and sewing.

Señora Celinda is grateful to those who form part of this dream through this means, and she promises to make her payments according to the established schedule.
