The Communal Bank 'Arrieros' is maD. up of people who live in the district of Carmen Alto, which is located in the city of Huamanga, a region where muleteers have traditionally lived. It is also an artisan region where textiles are maD.. This is why the Bank is called as it is. The Communal Bank 'Arrieros' was started by 16 members; most of them were invited by the leader.

Many of them sell their products door to door; their workshops are located at their homes, and they also sell their goods at the market of the city of Huamanga. The members need different amounts of money (300, 600, 900 Soles); a total of 9500 Soles for the Communal Bank. The loans will be invested in purchasing pigs, goat, wheat, flour, rice, sugar, cheese, ink, and wool. The dreams of these members is to expand their businesses, to establish a store in a permanent address, and for their children to be professionals.
