San Pedro San Pablo Group's story

The San Pedro y San Pablo Microfinance Institute is part of the Wari project. The microfinance institute is starting its fourth loan with 24 members, who are all from the Callanmarca districts in the Angaraes province of the Huancavelica departments. Their main businesses are in livestock and agriculture. The group members sell products like provisions, grains, small animals, fruits, and food. In Lidia’s case, she has a live-in partner and three children. She buys grains at the different street markets, then processes them to sell them at the Acobamba market. The group members need different loan amounts—anywhere from 200 to 500 to 800 and even 1,000.00 PEN—for a total of 13,400.00 PEN from their microfinance institute. The loan will be invested in purchasing grains, small animals, rice, sugar, and tubers. The group members dream of expanding their businesses and seeing their children become professionals.
