Wiphala Group's story

The Wiphala group is comprised of women who came together under the leadership of Margarita R., their current group president, six months ago. Margarita states that she decided to form this group and request a loan out of the need to earn a living.

Most of the group members have small businesses, such as a sporting apparel factory, making masitas (pastries), weaving, and other businesses. They will use this loan to purchase fabric, flour, and wool (depending on what type of business they have).

In this group: Margarita, Julia, Miguel Angel, Rosio Ana, Antonieta, Maria Luisa, Gaby Flora, Miriam Doritza, Ayde Susan, Danitza Ruth, Marisabel, Margarita, Rosario, Flor Rosa
