Punku Mayor De Maras Group's story

These members belong to the “Punku Mayor de Maras” communal bank. This bank is located in the Maras district, Urubamba province in the department of Cusco.

One member, Leonor, is 23 years old. She is married and has two children. She works in her own business—a small grocery store. She also works selling trout. She sells basic necessities such as rice, sugar, milk, and oil, working from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. At this point, she has been doing this type of work for a year, and it is going really well for her.

Her dream is to expand her grocery store business. She is asking for this loan to buy milk, sugar, oil, and rice. She thanks those who are part of her dream in this way and is committed to making her payments according to the established schedule.

The other group members work in agriculture, grain sales, animal sales, and a grocery store.

In this group: Leonor, Angelica, Francisca*, Andres Amilcar, Mario, Fortunata, Hipolita, Luz Karina, Justina*, Ofelia, Dolores, Nancy, Mercdes
