Vicuñitas Group's story

Informal commerce is the main activity of the group "Vicuñitas". Some members make a living selling milk. Feliza sells flip-flops and slippers. Others sell potatoes, while others sells lunches. The group has been with Kiva partner Pro-Mujer for more than two years. They meet every two weeks at the Andes focal center; at the moment the group consists of the 16 members. Now the women want to reinforce their businesses by purchasing larger quantities of merchandise and have the security to obtain more earnings to be able to fulfill their obligations.

In this group: Nohra, Feliza, Juana, Virginia, Josefa, Nora, Paulina, Hortencia, Edgar, Maria, Rosaura, Veronica, Carina, Beatriz, Maria, Bertha
