Unidos Por El Triunfo Group's story

Ana Maria is is 30 years old and lives with the father of her three youngest children. She is a member of the Alcancía Comunal Unidos por el Triunfo (United for Triumph Community Bank). She started selling clothes as a street vendor in the area where she lives: she started with a small sum of money, but as her earnings have improved in time, as she saved money to buy products such as T-shirts, trousers, sheets. She has increased her income, and now she is also sells shoes and slippers, and on Sundays she prepares and sells caldo D. cordero (lamb soup), a typical dish of the central mountain area of Peru. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy both garments and ingredients to prepare the lamb soup.

She aims to buy a sandwich cart to sell salchipapas (sliced pan-fried beef hot dogs or sausage and French fries) and Broaster chicken, a goal she is sure to achieve, even if the most important thing to her is to help, educate and love her children.
