San Luis De Huancapi Group's story

Sonia belongs to the communal bank "San Luis de Huancapi." The members are from the Huancapi district in Víctor Fajardo province, located 3 hours from the city of Ayacucho. The members have a variety of businesses such as: school cafe, grocery store, food sales, fruit and vegetable sales, the purchase and sale of small and large animals, and cereals. Sonia performs the role of assistant treasurer. She lives with a partner and has 2 children. Sonia has a school cafe. She started out selling candy in the streets; this became a source of income as she started selling her products at sporting events and other celebrations. Today she has her own business, which is a school cafe in the Basilio Auqui school. She gets her products in Ayacucho and at times in Huancapi, and sells them in the cafe and at festivals and sporting events. Her husband and children help her with the business. Her loan will be invested in the purchase of candy and other items to restock her cafe, and a portion of the loan will be used to open a bar in Huancapi. Sonia dreams of having her children become professionals, and having her own store for the wellbeing of her family.
