Niño Jesus De Huaytara Group's story

The Niño Jesús de Huaytara (Baby Jesus of Huaytara) Community Bank took its first loan with 10 members who come from the district of Huaytara, province of Huancavelica. The members carry out different businesses such as selling food, snacks, soft drinks and groceries, among other items. Such is the case of Estela, who is a single mother with three sons, all in school. Estela started selling snacks in the street only in the afternoon, and now also sells ceviche (a popular regional dish made with fish and lime) in the mornings. With the loan, Estela plans to purchase tables, chairs and a display case. Estela's dreams are educate her sons so they become successful and to have a restaurant at a fixed location. The members will need different loan amounts such as 400, 600 and 1000 soles for a total of 7,800 soles.

In this group: Clelia Estanis, Norma Aydee, Jova Estela, Susy Dianet, Sabina Florencia, Maria Jesus, Lady Soledad, Luz Nelida, Teresa Jesus, Maria Jacinta
