Mina Chojlla Group's story

Mina Chojlla is a group of 15 happy and dynamic women. They meet every 14 days in the Los Andes Community Center. They have been together for approximately three years.

Valeriana Añaya is married and has three children. She is one of the members, and she says she has been in the group for one and a half years. She joined the group because her niece invited her, and she needed capital for her business. She sells food. She first worked as a cook, and two years ago she wanted to be independent. She sells everyday in a place close to her home. She currently needs a loan to buy tables and chairs.

The rest of the members also have their own businesses like weaving sweaters, making shoes, and selling clothes and dried food. All of them need the loan to buy merchandise or raw material.

In this group: Juana, Demetria, Juana Martha, Teodora, Modesta, Gregoria, Martha, Santusa, Sabina, Maria Eugenia, Elena, Bethza, Virginia, Nely, Valeriana
