Las Violetas Group's story

The “Las Violetas” Group is comprised of 10 very supportive and hardworking people who live in the Año Nuevo zone in the Comas district.

R. is the secretary of the board of directors of the group. She is 51 years old and has two children who are now adults. She has managed and attended to her own soda fountain business for the past four years. It is called “Rosita” and is located in a market. R. began working for another person, which is where she learned business management. She acquired experience and when she felt confident and capable of becoming independent, she was able to advance her business with much effort.

Not too long ago, she had an operation and was not able to commit 100% to the soda foundation. Her children supported her, but as she is a hardworking and independent woman, she has not stopped producing and is working on handicrafts at the moment.

The requested loan will be invested partly in her soda foundation and partly in the rehabilitation payments for the surgical operation that she had, which will allow her to recover soon and return to work.

In this group: Egoavil Aliaga, Huapaya Cerna*, Huaman Puclla, Huacachino Villanueva, Perez Cardenas, Purizaca Sandoval, Marin Ventura, Huapaya Cerna*, Mendoza Condori, Vicente Cuzcano
