Sajama 1 Group's story

The members of Sajama named their group after the part of town where they live, which is characterized by single-story adobe homes. Since these women all live in the same part of town, they know each other pretty well. They are excited to be taking out their very first loan and are looking forward to the growth of their businesses over the next few months.

The board members of this group are strong and responsible leaders who make sure that their members come to meetings on time, make all of their payments, and work well together.

The majority of the members in this group work in the clothing sector; they sew and knit shawls and jackets from sheep and llama wool, and they buy and sell commercial clothing. Other members sell bread, cake, cheese, chicken, vegetables, and gift items.

They need a loan to buy more materials like cloth, wool and yarn to make clothing, and also to buy more commercial products to sell at their stands. With more inventory, it will be much easier for these women to attract clients, and the higher profits will enable them to make their lives better.

In this group: Paulina, Julia Rosmeri, Juana Flora, Pamela, Nancy, Martha, Cristina , Andrea Venancia, Jimena, Adela, Vicenta, Celenia
