Alto Queru Queru Group's story

Patricia del Carmen, 55, is a talented woman who has been making handicrafts for 15 years. She is also the president of the communal bank "Alto Queru Queru." We can see her in the photograph on the far right wearing a black shirt.

All of the members of this group want to improve their quality of life through these loans, and to do this they must increase their incomes. All of the members of this group know each other, because they live in the same neighborhood.

Patricia is requesting this loan in order to buy supplies for her handicraft business. Right now, she is making keychains with wool. This is a new product that she will be offering for sale.
