A loan of $4,450 helped a member to repair her cart.

Mirachisun Group's story

The “Mirachisun,” which means “Let’s Create Growth,” is starting its 22nd cycle with 20 members.

The members are in a variety of commercial activities like: sale of tubers, cosmetics sales, sweets sales, clothing sales, gas, jewelry and grocery sales; replacement parts, juices, cereals and small farm animals.

Such is Nora’s case. She is 40 years old, married and has three children. She sells home-made orange juice throughout the city’s wholesale food market; she also sells chicha (an alcoholic drink made from fermented maize) and snacks every day.

She will use her loan to repair her cart and expand so that she can sell more products. Her dream is to have her own home, educate her children, improve her business and have a stable location for her business.

The members all need varying loan amounts like: 300 soles, 450 soles, 600 soles for a total group loan of 10200 soles to the communal bank.

In this group: Yolanda, Rocio Graciela, Virginia, Lourdes, Paulina, Rebeca, Yene, Iris , Mercedes Renee, Miriam , Brigitte, Nora, Adela, Lea, Rosalia, Celia, Karina Vanessa, Maria Del Carmen, Tania, Cirela
