Ccolque T Ikari - Chocopia Group's story

The members belong to the Ccolque T Ikari-Chocopia Communal Bank. This bank is located in the district of Colquepata, which belongs to the province of Paucartambo and the department of Cusco.

The member is Señora Nelly, who is 44 years old, and a widow with 3 children. She works in her business, raising and selling animals, and she also works in agriculture. She raises and fattens guinea pigs and hens, selling them later in the different markets; and it is by means of this little business that she provides for her children. The member’s dream is to have a store where she would be able to sell the guinea pigs and hens. She is requesting a loan in order to purchase guinea pigs and hens, and feed for them.

The other members are engaged in the business of livestock-raising, animal sales, a grocery store, and a food business. The member thanks those who form part of this dream by these means, and she is committed to making her payments on schedule.

In this group: Nelly, Marleny, Valentina, Mercedes, Timotea, Epifanio, Alejandro, Claudio Augusto
