Señor De Huanca De Cusco Group's story

These members belong to the communal banking group "SEÑOR DE HUANCA DE CUSCO" which is located in the city and district of Cusco, Peru.

One of the members, Margarita, is 70, single and has five children. She runs a restaurant business and prepares different dishes such as chicken with potatoes, soups and meat stir-fry. Her work schedule is from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and she has been in business successfully for eight years. Her dream is to expand her restaurant and she is requesting a loan to buy cooking ingredients such as chicken, meat and vegetables.

The individual photograph of one of the members was taken after the group photo for work-related reasons.

The other members are involved in businesses such as blanket sales, animal farming, a grocery store and food sales.

Margarita is grateful to everyone taking part in her dream. She is committed to paying back the loan on time.
