Rosalinda De Constancia Group's story

The Community Bank "Rosalinda D. Constancia" belongs to the community of Pampas-constancia in the district of Lircay located in the department of Huancavelica. This community raises livestock and some weave, but most of its members are agricultural farmers and this is their primary source of income.

Bertha Lucila is married, she has four children aged 10, 9, 8 and a baby of 11 months. She runs a grocery store, which she begun with a small amount of capital and manages herself because her husband due to a lack of work has left to work in the mines. She has asked for a loan of 500 soles to invest in her shop to purchase essential goods such as rice, sugar and oil. Her dream is to improve her business and to stock many more things in order to have higher sales and more income.
