Rosas Y Un Clavel 3 Group's story

The communal bank Rosas y un Clavel 3, as part of the Agencia Villa Copacabana, is made up of eight members and is led by officers, of whom Secundina is the president.

Secundina is married and has two children. Currently, she has a business selling chuño [freeze-dried potatoes] and potatoes. She says that she learned this business 3 years ago.

The loan she will get now will be to increase her capital to purchase seeds in bulk, which she will get from the wholesalers in the city. Later, she will plant and harvest her products. This will serve her as a means of production. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family financially. Her aspiration is to grow her business. Secundina asks that you trust in her communal bank again.
