Las Kantutas 2 Group's story

The "Kantutas 2" Group is represented by Mrs Juana and comprises 12 members living in the same neighborhood. They are cheerful, united and very dynamic people. Mrs Juana is married and the mother of two children who are still young. Her eldest child goes to the school in the neighborhood. Mrs Juana sells fruit at the Central Market. She does not have a fixed stall, so she is forced to get up early every market day to get hold of a place and earn the necessary income to proviD. for her family. She lives in rented accommodation, but her greatest desire is to proviD. her daughter with a home where she can better live in comfort.

The other group members sell fruit, shampoo, food, skirts, clothes in general, and passenger transportation services. The ladies work hard in a competitive environment and are eager to succeed. Most of the ladies will use their share of the loan to increase their working capital and better face competition. This is the group's second loan cycle with the microfinance institution Fundación AgroCapital and its members know how to manage their funds to succeed and grow.
