Kuska Llankasun De Rumichaca Baja. Group's story

This cooperative bank calls itself "kuska llankasun D. rumichaca baja”. This bank is comprised of 16 members, all of whom are residents of the lower Rumichaca community, located 13 minutes from Urubamba. The predominant moD. of transportation used is “moto-taxi”. Electrical service arrived in this area only recently.

The members of this community bank in the Rumichaca zone dedicate themselves to various activities such as farming, planting corn, potatoes, vegetables and others, depending on the season. Some members also dedicate themselves to handmaD. crafts, as well as the sale of simple candles for illuminating their homes. Yet other members raise poultry, cows, and dairy products.

These members give thanks for the help provided to them, as the area they live in doesn’t allow easy access to banking services for their financial needs. They are grateful for the loan provided, and are committed to repaying it in its entirety and in the time-frame allotted.
