Joyitas De Cosmos Group's story

The members of the group “Joyitas de Cosmos” (Jewels of the Cosmos) meet every two weeks at the Collpani Community Center. They have neighborhood shops that offer various products such as vegetables, prepared foods, chuño (dehydrated potatoes), dried foods, cosmetics, and woven clothing. All of them work very hard to succeed so that their families can have a better quality of life. They have worked together as a group for approximately 5 years. They enjoy participating in the training seminars and have also taken advantage of medical services in which they bring their children to the clinic to have their height and weight monitored.


The members need access to a loan so that they can increase their operating capital. The proceeds will be used to buy merchandise.

In this group: Celia, Maria Luisa, Manuela*, Lucia Angelica, Ana*, Rosa, Roslinda, Wilma, Victoria Corina, Paulina, Clara, Claudia, Silvia Angelica
