Yanapasiñani Group's story

“Yanapasiñani” means we will help. It is a community association that belongs to the Los Andes Community Center. There are 12 members who get together in a very orderly way.

Some of the members have businesses selling things such as cosmetics, sweets, clothes, food, vegetables and toys. Others make sportswear, jewelry, and hats.

The sales people need a loan to buy merchandise. The others need to buy raw materials.

Verónica G. is one of the oldest members. She remembers that when she joined the Community Association she did not have a business. But, little by little, she got involved in selling cosmetics. With the passage of time, she was able to get a fixed place to sell from. Now, her goal is to carry more products to offer her customers.

In this group: Sandra , Juana, Dominga, Lourdes, Angelica, Natividad, Beatriz, Beatriz, Juana, Cesar Smith, Veronica, Graciela *
