Kantutitas Del Illampu Group's story

The “Kantutitas of Illampu” group is represented by Ms. Virginia Beatriz and maD. up of 12 members, all of whom live in the same area and know each other very well. They are very social, friendly, and happy people. Ms. Virginia Beatriz is single and lives in her mother's house, and cares for her as she has bad health. She works selling clothing, skirts, and blankets at the 16 D. julio market. She does not have children, but she cares for her younger brother, as her mother is no longer able to do so. The other group members work in commerce but in different areas, such as in stores, or selling stationery, fruit, clothing, vegetables, and food. Others work in handicrafts making woven ponchos, blankets, scarves, gloves, and socks. The loan will be used to increase each member's supplies. A great majority of the members have a lot of experience in their businesses. To deal with the heavy competition in the market, each member has their own way off displaying or selling their wares. The members have had group loans as well as individual loans from different institutions, and this is their first loan with our institution. They already have plenty of knowledge when it comes to repaying loans.

In this group: Virginia Beatriz, Teodora, Julia, Yanneth, Tereza Amalia, Clemencia, Cristina, Olga Victoria, Fanny, Remedios, Alcira Vania, Pacesa Hortencia
