Trabajando Con Exito Ym Group's story

The Trabajando Con Exito YM communal bank is made up of eight members, of which Virginia, in a pink sweater, is the president. At the left in a dark gray sweater is Rayssa Madeline, the treasurer, and in the middle is Noemí Wara, the recording secretary.

Virginia had a daughter at the age of 19. Her partner left her because he already had a family before her, which was why she looked for a new path at the age of 20. She went looking for work in a rooming house in the city of Cochabamba, where she suffered a lot. She didn't have anyone to take care of her baby; she had to go out to work every day with her baby. But even so she endured everything because it was her only source of income.

One day she tired of it and was invited to the city of Oruro, where today she's still a persevering woman who once again ran into problems. She met and fell in love with a young man and got pregnant. She suffered violence from her partner, who also drank a lot and sometimes didn't come home. And she screwed up her courage and left her partner.

Today Virginia is father and mother to her children. Now she has her stall in the market selling shoes and it's going very well for her.

She's going to use the loan she's requesting to buy more merchandise. That way she can earn more income and be able to have her own little house to live in comfortably with her son, because they're renting at the moment.
